Description
Although the overall rate of violent crime has not increased, law enforcement and public health officials describe an "epidemic" of youth violence. Kids are killing (and being killed) for pocket change, jackets, sneakers, and jewelry. In the United States, gunfire kills a child every two hours. Attorney General Janet Reno has called youth violence "the greatest single crime problem in America". This accomplished author thoroughly examines the problem, its causes, and some possible cures. She even heralds some remarkable success stories.
