About this title


A clear and compelling diagnosis and prescription for the most alarming social problem in American history: the all-but-inevitable explosion in violent crime in the best ten years. Charts & tables.


If it is difficult to take seriously a book on crime-fighting that starts by calling the Reagan-Bush drug war "the most successful attack on a serious social problem in the last quarter-century," consider that the authors up the ante with their alarmist forecasts of an approaching wave of youthful "super-predators," members of "the youngest, biggest and baddest generation any society has ever known." Evidence for this army of thugs seems slight in the face of sharp nationwide declines in rates of violent crime, but then former drug czar and self-appointed virtue expert William Bennett is preaching to the choir here anyway.
