COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course explores juvenile street gangs, when they exist, when they are illusory, public reactions to them. It also considers co-offending by juveniles who are not necessarily gang members. The course considers what membership in a gang means and when gangs are cohesive or not. It examines variations among juvenile street gangs, and contrasts these with other groups of co-offenders that are sometimes called "gangs".
