0 Reviews
GANGS deals with an issue of increasing concern in towns and cities around the world. It explores subjects such as: how young people are lured into gang life; the links between gangs and violent crime on our streets; and whether gangs can be a good force or are always a threat to society.The VOICES series brings alive a range of modern-day issues - many of them highly controversial - and aims to stimulate debate and discussion. Firsthand quotes from young people and figures in authority present often opposing views, and offer a global perspective on a wide variety of questions relating to each topic. Summaries of statistics complement the text and provide further food for thought.
