The Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation
Street Politics and the Transformation of a New York City Gang

by David C. Brotherton and Luis Barrios

“In The Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation: Street Politics and the Transformation of a New York City Gang, Mr. Brotherton and Mr. Barrios provide a detailed analysis of the rise and fall of the gang’s reform process, which had fallen into severe difficulties by 2001.”
—Chronicle of Higher Education

“[This] well-researched book seems to focus intentionally on the social and structural aspects of the gang, because understanding those is key to understanding gang membership and steering youth out of it.”
—Youth Today

“Recommended. Undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and policy makers”
—Choice

“Brotherton and Barrios have raised the bar on street gang research.Their attentiveness to history, social context, and patterns of social change within gangs over time combine the best of sociological and anthropological methods. While criminologists will benefit from this extraordinary book, it should be required reading for all students of American cities.”
—Sudhir Alladi Venkatesh, Associate Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Columbia University

“An empirical challenge and theoretical wake-up call to an all-but-moribund criminology. Classic insider sociology.”
—John M. Hagedorn, University of Illinois at Chicago, Department of Criminal Justice

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
