The Politics of Gun Control
This is a revised and updated analysis of the arguments for and against gun control. It aims to account for the political and cultural forces that make gun control one of the most intractable and divisive issues of American politics. The author proposes a new approach to the debate that offers a method of achieving political accommodation between pro- and anti-gun forces that can work despite their enduring hostility and mutual suspicion. The new framework he proposes for gun control is based on international relations theory.
