Gangs

Can anyone suggest some very good books on gangs and gang warfare/practices?

I'm particularly interested in South/Central American gangs and also those operating in the States. Although saying that any good factual book on gangs anywhere would be useful.

Info needed for a future project and all suggestions gratefully received.

Many thanks!

Gangs of New York - originally published in 1920's(?)
Not a bad little history, more a case of chronology and history though.

Sadly, yes it did inspire the film, but don't let that put you off.

I actually enjoyed the film, but I guess the less said about that the better :p

I saw a copy of the book in a Waterstones a few months ago but refrained from buying it because it was pretty battered. Will order a copy for myself (and hope it arrives in slightly less battered state). Thanks for the tip!
