A moving and insightful book. A serious study on a difficult subject. Very impressive! I wish it could be read by all politics in the world...

If we as a society did half of what James Gilligan recommends we would live in a better world. He has worked in criminal justice for 25 years with a proven record. His unique experience and insight has given us several common sense approaches to reduce violence and crime, and save so many wasted tax dollars.

The cliff notes version - Violence can be traced back to shame ( or the avoidance of shame) and that the ever longer jail terms and harsher prisons are going to do nothing to reduce crime.

Towards the end he over generalizes about many of his ideas. But then again, for a free book its actually pretty descent

A comprehensive book on where violence starts, how it is manifested and how we can arrange society to reduce the amount of it. Simply brilliant!
