ABSTRACT
The book Bandidos, edited by Richard Slatta, published by Greenwood Press, purports to be a test of Hobsbawm's model of social banditry. In a sense, it succeeds in showing that Hobsbawm's model is invalid for the bandits of Latin America. What it does not show, and could have shown is that Hobsbawm's model is faulty in that it deals with the mythologized version of real bandits.
