Wicked book! Read the unbelievable but tree story of how the gang wars that began in Jamaica in the 1970s from the PNP and JLP political fighting led to the emergence of widespread Jamaican gangs controlling parts of America dealing guns and drugs. This book is like a movie.


Among the ethnic gangs that rule America's inner cities, none has had the impact of the Jamaican posses. Spawned in the ghettos of Kingston as mercenary street-fighters for the island's politicians, the posses began migrating to the United States in the early 1980s, just in time to catch and ride the crack wave as it engulfed the country. Laurie Gunst's provocative expose of the Jamaican politicians' role in creating this problem is also a moving and compelling tale of suffering and exploitation.
