    Reviews

    Pedro Noguera, University of California, Los Angeles:
    Most discussions of violence focus on its horrors and have the tendency to portray perpetrators in a stereotypical manner. This book, on the other hand, has the potential to deepen our understanding of violence and shed light on solutions.
