This important 3-volume set unravels societal issues so that readers can examine and study various forms of violence in America from many different perspectives. In 600 A-Z articles, illustrated with over 300 photos, charts, and maps, the Encyclopedia addresses criminal justice issues, violence in the media, historical acts of violence, and the cultural and biological roots of violence. Biographies of over 100 Americans associated with violence are also featured.
"An interdisciplinary reference work that seriously examines the historical, psychological, and biological aspects of violence in order to better understand and deal with the all too commonplace contemporary violent behavior...The volume has all the features of a well-conceived and conscientiously executed reference work for researchers on the secondary and post-secondary level. Highly recommended for reference collections in all secondary or post-secondary libraries. A landmark work."
