A nation of lords: the autobiography of the Vice Lords
An instructive and relevant look at an explosive period in urban history! This savagely moving autobiography of a violent street gang covers its heyday in the 1960s when it had perhaps ten thousand members in at least twenty-six branches on Chicagożs West Side. It is the story of a street gang that became a community organization, supported by private foundations and corporations and dedicated to social, economic, and political development. The gangżs violent neighborhood was transformed into Head Startżs most improved block where the crime rate decreased as did the number of gang-related killings.
