Review: Understanding and Preventing Violence: Volume 1User Review - Amanda - Goodreads
This book is exceedingly dry (but I suppose that is to be expected in a government report) and somewhat dated, but it does provide a solid background on the work that has been done to date in the peer-reviewed world to better understand and prevent violence. Read full review
