The Gangs of Orange County: A Critique and Synthesis of Social Policy.
Lopez, Jose; Mirande, Alfredo
Aztlan: A Journal of Chicano Studies, v19 n1 p125-46 Spr 1988-90
Orange County's public policy responses to youth gangs have involved overt suppression or educational interventions directed at ethnic minorities, particularly Chicanos. Such approaches overlook the multiethnic nature of gang violence and ignore the problem's roots--emerging economic, demographic, and residential patterns that produce apartheid-like conditions. Contains 24 references. (SV)
