Book review: Robinson-Easley, AC (2012) ‘Our Children, Our Responsibilities: Saving the youth we are losing to gangs’ reviewed by John Winterdyk

The book examines the plight of our at-risk youth and in particular the issue of youth gangs. It offers a pure, genuine, and informed perspective on how we might begin to shift our focus from one of crime control to community capacity building and empowerment when dealing with young persons who ‘get lost to gangs’.
