ABSTRACT

Although by no means an expert on the issues dealt with in this book, as a psychiatrist I am at least peripherally interested in the roots of crime and violence. As a citizen, I share the general concern about the specter of crime threatening our social life. It was therefore with a good deal of interest that I approached American Violence and Public Policy.

The work is essentially an update, 15 years later, of the findings of the 1968 National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence (Violence Commission). The contributors, some of whom took part in the work of the Violence Commission, are all well-known scholars and researchers, and many are actively involved in efforts to understand and reduce crime. The editor and a principal contributor, Lynn A. Curtis, is president of the Eisenhower Commission and there is a short foreword by Milton Eisenhower.
