9780131120976: Violence: A Contemporary Reader

This book looks at violence in a wide variety of settings, showing readers that violence does not only occur on the inner-city streets, but inside the family, school, and even the workplace. Carefully chosen articles discuss the crime we traditionally define as violent, as well as the crime that is on the rise—and could significantly alter our perception of what violent crime actually is. Chapter topics include violence in the U.S., sexual crimes and violence, serial and mass murder, child violence, terrorism, institutional violence, and violence and policy implication. For individuals considering a career in the criminal justice field.
