Includes bibliographical references.

"This report is based on a review of research literature - published in print as well as on the Internet, primarily of youth gang-related research material that originated in the United States - because of its relative prevalence as compared to the relative paucity of Canadian research. It seeks to have a better understanding of the gang phenomenon in general, and explores possible strategies for its prevention and reduction."--P. 13.
