hardback with paper dust jacket; book is in very good condition; clean pages; dust jacket has been repaired with clear tape on the front and back covers; some edge wear; light blue board with blue title on navy spine // A clear and compelling diagnosis and prescription for the most alarming social problem in American history: the all-but-inevitable explosion in violent crime in the best ten years. Hidden behind the good tidings about crime in America is a far darker reality. The intoxicating headlines-of safer cities, lower murder rates, and a declining crime-have a sobering morning after: the carnage is going to get a lot worse and the body count is going to get a lot higher. For the good news masks an alarming increase in teenage violence-an increase in the number and ferocity of teenage crimes and a decrease in the average age of offenders.
