Having read Dr. Gilligan's first book, I was very excited to see he had a sequel dealing with the prevention of violence. The first one changed my perspective on a number of things and this book expanded on that. I strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to understand the necessary factors for preventing violence.

Preventing Violence offers great insight on the primary causes of violence, the disparities in the United States, and how inappropriately the United States justice system is handling the issue. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who is interested in social issues or criminal justice.

I really was hoping for more concrete data on programs preventing violence in prisons. I thought I needed to know the tertiary programs. What Gilligan taught us is that primary and secondary public health programs are desparately needed.
Well Done.

excellent insights into the power of shame and the fact that our prison system is pumping out hardened criminals rather than healing hurt people.
