Provides a common vocabulary for international, interdisciplinary researchers studying youth gangs
Explores reasons for joining and leaving gangs
Presents directions for future research in gang intervention and prevention
Examines cutting-edge issues in gang research including internet and social media use and fear of crime

This unique volume explores why and how youth join and leave gangs, as a lens for exploring intervention and prevention through comparative, international research. The book explores three key questions: how do youth gangs form and how do they change over time? Why do youth join street gangs, and why do they leave? How can we use this knowledge to foster more effective interventions for gang problems? Drawing from research conducted in ten different countries (Belgium, Canada, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Venezuela)and a variety of disciplines, sixteen original chapters provide unique insights into:
1) patterns of gang participation and how it impacts individual behavior
2) individual transitions and their impact on gang transformations
3) fostering gang transition and transformation.
This work will be of interest to researchers in Criminology and Criminal Justice, particularly with an interest in youth gangs, developmental and life-course criminology, criminal careers, and criminal networks, as well as related fields such as sociology, psychology, and comparative law, and public health.‚Äč
