Street-Gang and Tribal-Warrior Autobiographies

$115.00
DESCRIPTION

Down the ages warriors have told the stories about their powers and their deeds. And some of their stories have made it into print--those of Black Elk, a Sioux shaman; Two Leggings and Plenty Coups, Crow Indians; Wolf Chief, the eagle hunter; Tukup and Tariri, shrinkers of heads; and others from North America, New Guinea, the island of Alor, the highlands of Luzon and even a Bedouin.

H. David Brumble's 'Street-Gang and Tribal-Warrior Autobiographies' introduces readers to all these warrior autobiographies--and to the memoirs of warriors who live just down the block: Carl Joyeaux's 'Out of the Burning', Colton Simpson's 'Inside the Crips', Nathan McCall's 'Makes Me Wanna Holler' and Sanyika Shakur's 'Monster'. Gangbangers, Brumble argues, have told life stories that are eerily like the life stories that come to us from warrior tribes. He suggests that gangbangers were so alienated from the larger society that they reinvented something very similar to the tribal-warrior cultures right in the asphalt heart of American cities.

Grisly, probing and resonant with the voices of generations of fighters, 'Street-Gang and Tribal-Warrior Autobiographies' is an unsettling work of cross-disciplinary scholarship.
