Inhaltsangabe: This text is designed to look at important and complex issues, such as what explanations for violence (biological and cultural) in America have been offered over the years, and how and with what social consequences, has violence been represented in art and popular culture. The encyclopedia addresses criminal justice issues, violence in the media, historical acts of violence and the cultural and biological roots of violence.
Review: "This encyclopedia attempts to explore the subject of violence by exposing all aspects of its nature, offering readers an 'unprecedented inventory of what scholarship and research now know about violence in America.' Its definition of violence includes, as with the Kitty Genovese case, injury inflicted on a person but stretches to cover injuries inflicted on people against animals, the natural environment, or property. The injury may be physical or emotional, legal or criminal, intentional or not.
Some of the more than 600 entries written by 444 contributors cover people...Other entries treat violence not by looking at individuals but by covering specific events, social conditions, and cultural trends...A third type of entry treats concepts, summarizing and explaining the current research on Capital punishment, Mass murder, Nonviolence, Suicide, and more. Approximately 30 major essays, some as long as 12,000 words, examine broad topics such as Alcohol and alcoholism and Sport.
This unique source is highly recommended. It manages to maintain a scholarly balance between attention-grabbing detail and reflective analysis. Perhaps its most engaging feature is simply the juxtaposition of its varied but related topics. Video games, military interventions, corporal punishment, abortion, and racial unrest are all brought together in a solid exploration of a disturbing topic. "Violence in America" deserves a place in academic and public-library collections."
