A Hard Place: The Rise of Street Gangs
Paperback - English

Today, the gang culture has developed into a global subculture in more countries than ever before, and as such we need to understand it and develop strategies to suppress it.

Brett Stevens served in the police force for 13 years, working at Sydney's infamous red-light district of Kings Cross, followed by the Tactical Response Group. In the 1990s he spent a number of years in the United States studying police tactics and the impact of street gangs before managing troubled young gang members in group homes. It was here that he came to understand the gang ethos and the shared notions of respect, courage and duty.

On returning to Australia he identified the same forces that he had seen in the United States, which have led to the rise of home-grown gangs, and he witnessed their impact upon his own community and even his family.

A Hard Place is Brett Stevens' firsthand account of the spread of gang culture across the world, where drive-by shootings and communities under siege have become the new normal.
