Hood rat - Gavin Knight

Non-fiction.
Which is incredibly worrying.
Just how does a hood rat evolve?
What is required of the role?
And how would you escape?
Covering three cities, London, Manchester and Glasgow Gavin Knight leads us through the underworld as he gets to know the police and the youths involved.
The book covers the drug trade and sink estates as well as the police dedicated to removing the problem.
As it is such a worrying book it does sometimes become depressing as you get further through and no ideas for resolution or reduction are supplied.
This is however corrected at the end of the book and the idea is notable for it's simplicity.
Recommended reading for the police force of Luton.
