Violence in America

Violence in America
Protest, Rebellion, Reform

Edited by:

July 1989 | 528 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This third edition is a completely new book with the 12 chapters of this volume written specifically for it. The volume focuses on the issues that generate group violence. The contributors, four of whom contributed to the first edition, assess their views about the historical precedents and international parallels of American violence. There is a wealth of new evidence and theories that deepen our understanding about the sources of recurring conflict and the tenuous nature of consensus in American society.
