Synopsis: America has a far more violent and criminal past than most realize. Some historians in the 1960s and 1970s argued that America had a uniquely violent culture, tying this position to American foreign policy and urban riots. Though useful in focusing on past episodes of violence, these historians worked more as cultural commentators and their work did not contribute to a broader empirical or deeper cultural understanding of criminal violence in the past. For although we have had and still have a high rate of criminal violence, the notion that this comes from some deep strain in American culture must be considered only as an untested hypothesis, no more. For although we are one of the most murderous industrial nations, we are not the most murderous of all New World Nations. The understanding of violence in its historical context is essential to any deep understanding of either violence or America. The articles in this volume would attempt to make the reader think long and hard about the problems of crime in history.
