Urban Politics: The Political Culture of Gangs is a juxtaposition of street gang organizations and government theory and organization. It is a civil philosophy reference book that examines street gang behavior and culture in an unconventional way. It assesses political phenomenon such as: social contracts, the media, political parties, city council structures, budgeting, and other forms of political conduct, within a street gang organization context. Urban Politics offers a unique perspective into gang culture that challenges the reader to view street gang organizations from the inside with a creative slant. Urban Politics is a fascinating, yet horrifying insight into the underground culture of street gang organizations.
