Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

When award-winning educator and activist Geoff Canada was growing up in the Bronx, the "sidewalk" boys learned the codes of the block from their elders and were ranked--and to some degree protected--through the rituals of fist, stick, and knife. Weaving in and out of his stark storytelling is a cogent anaylsis of how the complicity of gun manufacturers turned this contained violence into today's world of drive-by shootings and automatic weapons.


Review:

"In Fist Stick Knife Gun: A Personal History of Violence in America, Geoffrey Canada writes of this crisis in a style that is rarely less simple, or any less jolting."

Leah Hager Cohen, New York Times Book Review, 06/18/1995

Review:

"Among the many startling relevations that...Canada brings to his study of urban violence among children today...is his well-researched argument that the gun-manufacturing industry has begun to market guns to children and women in the inner city."

Paula Woods, San Francisco Chronicle, 07/09/1995
