Format: Paperback
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.

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

The book was for school, but I would read it again anyway. I appreciated the author's slant on violence and prevention.

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.
