Girls, Gangs, Women and Drugs isMoreThis important new work by critically the acclaimed sociologist and author of Dangerous Society makes it clear that girls and young women have become a real force in the drug culture and in 1990s urban gang life. Girls, Gangs, Women and Drugs is based on a decade of field work undertaken in the city of Detroit by one of Americas foremost gang experts and his team of researchers.

In the course of this investigation, Taylor and his staff interviewed hundreds of girls and young women. Based on what they learned, Dr. Taylor has prepared this spell-binding account of drugs, money, sex, and violence. He commands the readers attention as complex webs of female gang life and drug culture are unraveled. Girls, Gangs, Women, and Drugs is a book about women, young and old- it is about gangs- it is a book about their survival in a society that has abandoned them- it is a book about women in the criminal justice system- it is about judges, attorneys, administrators of the court, and correctional officers- it is about the women who serve on the police force.

It focuses on a large segment of Detroits female population and how these women see what they are doing as committing acts of self-empowerment - the personal pursuit of their own version of the American Dream. Girls, Gangs, Women, and Drugs takes a close look at the hard economic realities of life on the street and the women who must encounter them every day. Its message is clear: female involvement with drugs and gangs is yet another facet of Americas decaying urban culture, one that commands our immediate attention.
