Drawing upon unique empirical data based on interviews with high profile ex-offenders and experts, this book sheds new light on drug markets and gangs in the UK. The study shows how traditional methods of tackling gang violence fail to address the intertwined nature of those criminal activities which can overlap with other organized crime spheres. McLean sparks new debate on the subject, offering solutions and alternatives.
Review Quotes
James Windle, University College Cork, Ireland
''A well-written and fascinating ethnography which provides a holistic and nuanced description of Scottish gangs and drug markets. Should be essential reading for students, academics, practitioners and policy makers in Scotland and beyond.''
