Violence in America: an encyclopedia / Ronald Gottesman, editor in chief; Richard Maxwell Brown, consulting editorUser Review - Book Verdict
This three-volume set on the social, historical, biological, and cultural aspects of violence in the United States offers 600 entries on topics ranging from violence, homicide, and race and ethnicity to women, child abuse, labor and unions, sociobiology, "ultimate fighting," television, gun violence, and various events and persons. Gottesman (English, Univ. of Southern California) and Brown (history, Univ. of Oregon) define violence not only as "physical, emotional, or psychological" injury but also as the threat of injury to individuals, animals, property, or environment. Ranging from 500 to 5000 words, the signed entries are by academics in criminal justice, history, psychology, sociology, and English, among other disciplines. This is a very nicely done encyclopedia with a carefully constructed index, bibliographies, some 350 photographs, and useful appendixes. The well-written and informative entries are an excellent starting point for high school and college research projects. Though it overlaps considerably with Encyclopedia of Violence, Peace and Conflict (Academic Pr., 1999), that work focuses somewhat more on war and international issues and is for a strictly academic audience. Violence in America is highly recommended for academic, high school, and public libraries. [See also "Best Reference Sources 1999," p. 54.--Ed.]--Mary Jane Brustman, Univ. at Albany Libs. ...
