Criminal gangs (of both youth and adult varieties) provide a useful illustration of a range of sociological concepts (such as patterned behaviour and subcultural theory).

This PowerPoint Presentation presents four different contemporary "gang typologies" for students to consider:

1. Klein (2001): Street Gangs

2. Gordon (2000): Youth Groupings

3. Pitts (2007): Gangs / Groups

4. Hallsworth and Young (2004): Urban Collectivities
