About this product
- DescriptionThis work offers a look at violence in America - why it is so prevalent, and what and who are responsible. The author takes the long view of his subject, developing the historical pattern of violence and disorder in this country. Where there is violent and disorderly behaviour, he shows, there are plenty of men, largely young and single. What began in the mining camp and bunkhouse has simply continued in the urban world today. Broadly interdisciplinary, looking at the interplay of biological, social and historical forces behind the dark side of American life, the book offers a diagsis of the violence in American society.
