Juvenile Gangs

Excerpt

This volume is the result of several sources operating at a time when Dr. Geis was able to apply his own knowledge of the literature on gangs to a wide ranging collection of fifteen papers on juvenile gangs. These were delivered by their authors before the annual conventions of the American Sociological Association and the Society for the Study of Social Problems in Los Angeles, August 25-26, 1963.

The papers were solicited by the Youth Studies Center of the University of Southern California and supported by a training grant from the Office of Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Development, Welfare Administration, Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Washington, D. C.

Authors of the papers were: Riva Bauzer, Marilyn Bibb, Nathan S. Caplan, John P. Clark, Charles N. Cooper, Morton Cooper, Dennis J. Deshaies, Laurence L. Frost, Walter J. Kephart, John P. Koval, William R. Larson, Hans W. Mattick, A. W. McEachern, Walter B. Miller, Barbara G. Myerhoff, Kenneth Polk, Ramon J. Rivera, Gerald D. Robin, Herman and Julia Schwendinger, James F. Short, Jr., Irving Spergel, Gerald D. Suttles, Ray A. Tennyson, and Eugene P. Wenninger.

This volume by Dr. Geis represents the happy meeting of his long interest in the juvenile gang and the new developments in research and theory that were represented by the conference. As such it transcends the conference and links those researches and thoughts to some of the major work in the field of delinquency. Furthermore, it provides a reappraisal of the problem of the gang for perusal by practitioners, students and laymen.
