About the Author

The author merges transformative analytics with advanced knowledge of community dynamics and computer modeling. This is the new and highly advanced information on the evolution of community violence and workable solutions by one who has lived and has proof of success. In 1991, the author originated the Target Area Strategy (Congressional Record, 5.27.1993 Pg E1410-11) which has been copied and "borrowed" but remains the model for comprehensive multi-agency targeting used by community agencies and law enforcement. This is the first fundamental change since 1991. Steven Valdivia was the first "gang czar" recruited by the city and county of Los Angeles, Calif. to serve during the period of highest gang activity in the nation's history and culminated by the Rodney King riots, 1975 to 1993. He has modeled the historical relationships of community to society that culminates in peace and violence up to and including gangs and riots. This is a real road to true understanding of societal dynamics and thus solutions to community violence on reservations, in barrios and in ghettos.
