Summary

Book about how developmental changes and housing schemes in Dundee from 1945 onwards became overrun by street gangs. Some of these gangs still survive today.

Gangs of Dundee Summary

Gangs of Dundee by Gary Robertson

Dundee, like most cities throughout Britain, saw massive developmental changes when war ended in 1945. Housing schemes were built to alleviate problems with over-crowding. By the mid-60s however, these schemes were overrun by street gangs, growing ever more dangerous and troublesome. By the 1970s, the gangs ruled the streets of Dundee, and men knew better than to walk alone off their own turf. Most of the infamous gangs still survive, the Kirkton Huns, most bloody of all, continues to operate today, with younger men taking up the fight.

Gangs of Dundee Reviews

Dundee in the 1970s was a fearsome place where gangs ruled the city's schemes. Territory was everything and frequent, bloody battles were fought over turf. DUNDEE COURIER
