Review:


"Elliott Currie reminds us that violent crime in America is not an intractable curse but a product of social arrangements and crime policies that are within our power to change. Informed by comparative perspectives, he brilliantly unpacks the causes of violence, showing that a different future can be chosen. Short in length but long in insight, The Roots of Danger is a volume that all criminologists should read--and then assign in the courses that they teach."--Francis T. Cullen, University of Cincinnati


"The Roots of Danger is an extremely informative and useful addition to the literature on violence. It is highly recommended for both undergraduate and graduate students."--Jayne Mooney, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, The City University of New York


"Elliott Currie has provided us with a comprehensive and accessible account of patterns and explanations for variation in rates of violence around the world. He makes clear the directions that we should (and shouldn't) be pursuing in our efforts to drive these rates down to acceptable levels. This book is a timely and useful text for courses focused on the study of crime and violence."--Michael O. Maume, University of North Carolina Wilmington


"The Roots of Danger provides basic information about the pervasiveness of violence and uses an integrated theory to explain violence globally. For an undergraduate elective like Violence, the information herein is what students should leave the class knowing. Currie is not only informed in the area of violent crime; he is a prudent author who shows respect towards the group most at risk of offending, and has great insight into the struggles of the marginalized."--Angeline Forde, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
