Residence and Territoriality in Chicano Gangs.
Moore, Joan; And Others
Social Problems, v31 n2 p182-94 Dec 1983
Presents findings from research on Chicano gangs in Los Angeles, which indicates that many gang members do not live in the territory they defend as their "turf." Suggests that the ecological premises of research from the old "Chicago school of sociologists" no longer apply to gangs in modern U. S. cities. (Author/GC)
