By the 1990s, Asian crime groups will become the United States' foremost organized crime problem. Ko-lin Chin warns that limited law enforcement resources will be ineffective without a precise understanding of the norms, values, structure, criminal patterns, and interrelationships of these groups. Taking a major step toward this effort Chin's volume is a sociological investigation of Triads, tongs, and street gangs. It explores the where, how, and why of these groups and examines the connection between Triad subculture and criminality.
