Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contributors from the fields of law, criminology, medicine, psychiatry, and feminist studies address major issues in the gun- control debate, such as the Brady Bill, guns and women, assault weapons, and juvenile armed crime. The slant is toward gun access, and a conclusion argues that the true causes of crime are the breakdown of the family and "hopelessness" among male youth in inner cities. Includes b&w photos of guns.
