Overview

Since the 1980s, the gap between the rich and the poor haswidened - a winner-loser culture has emerged, with the disadvantaged deemed the 'losers'. Marshalling the most up-to-date research on crime and violence, both nationally and internationally, and linking it to trends in social, familial and economic dysfunction caused by deprivation, Oliver James shows how inequality serves to provide the breeding ground for violence and the conditions by which it is perpetuated.

'Suited to professionals trying to ensure that today's young bullies do not become the next generation of violent criminals.' The Sunday Times

'The most detailed study yet of Home Office crime statistics.' Daily Telegraph

"Provide(s) an interesting overview of some of the economic, sociological, familial and psychological factors that may contribute to the development of aggressive and violent behaviour in young people." Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry Vol 2(2)

'I find the book invaluable in addressing, as a psychologist or social psychologist, the links between increasing inequality - which equals poverty for all practical purposes - maternal depression and male violence. This is both original and powerful, and very persuasive.' Professor David Downes
