In this volume meant for prosecutors and defense attorneys, Yablonsky, a psychotherapist and retired professor of criminology and sociology at California State U.-Northridge, describes the judicial processing of gangs in courts. He presents theories about criminal gang structure and behavior and how they connect to the criminal justice process. In addition, a brief history of American gangs in the criminal justice system, racial issues, and the death penalty are discussed. This edition has been updated based on his experience as an expert witness in many court cases since the first was published, many of which are summarized here. A chapter on the perspective of the prosecutor has also been added; it is a reprinted article written by the Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney.
