Urban Street Terrorism – The Mexican Mafia and the Surenos

by Al Valdez & Rene Eriquez

This book will take you on a journey into the inner workings of California’s first prison gang, the Mexican Mafia. Discover how this prison gang uses influence, power, and violence to control an army of over 40,000 street gang members across the nation and even in other countries. The Mexican Mafia is considered an international gang which recruits from the ranks of the Sureños. Learn about the special relationship this group has with Hispanic street and prison gangs, Mexican drug trafficking organizations and the constant battle over money, power and control.

The co-author, Rene Enriquez was once a high ranking Mexican Mafia leader that has spent several years in California’s prison system. He was the subject of Chris Blatchford’s book, The Black Hand, but he defected from the life and has assisted law enforcement in many investigations.
