Collective violence by James F Short( Book )

23 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collective violence has played an important role throughout American history, though we have typically denied it. But it is not enough to repress violence or to suppress our knowledge of it. We must understand the phenomenon, and to do this, we must learn what violent groups are trying to say. Th at some choose violence tells us something about the perpetrators, inevitably, about ourselves and the society we have built."--Provided by publisher

The gang; a study of 1,313 gangs in Chicago by Frederic Milton Thrasher( Book )

29 editions published between 1936 and 1980 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While gangs and gang culture have been around for countless centuries, The Gang is one of the first academic studies of the phenomenon. Originally published in 1927, Frederic M. Thrasher's magnum opus offers a profound and careful analysis of hundreds of gangs in Chicago in the early part of the twentieth century. With rich prose and an eye for detail, Thrasher looks specifically at the way in which urban geography shapes gangs, and posits the thesis that neighborhoods in flux are more likely to produce gangs. Moreover, he traces culture back to feudal and medieval power systems and links tribal ethos in other societies to codes of honor and glory found in American gangs. Thrasher approaches his subject with empathy and insightfulness and creates a multifaceted and textured portrait that still has much to offer to readers today. With handsome images that evoke the era, The Gang not only explores an important moment in the history of Chicago, but also is itself a landmark in the history of sociology and subcultural theory. This second edition, published in 1936, adds a final chapter to the 1927 book."--Back cover
Suicide and homicide; some economic sociological and psychological aspects of aggression by Andrew F Henry( Book )

Poverty, ethnicity, and violent crime by James F Short( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Violent crime in America is more strongly associated with poverty and with changing social and economic conditions than with race or ethnicity, and patterns of violence are changing. These are among the conclusions of Poverty, Ethnicity, and Violent Crime, a searching analysis that draws on scholarly research from all the social and behavioral sciences. By framing his analysis in terms of different levels of explanation, Short is able to identify fundamental causal conditions and processes that result in violent crime. The book also examines current policies and political and scholarly controversies concerning the control of violent crime. This book can serve as a text or as supplementary reading for a variety of criminology courses."--BOOK JACKET
