In Homicide: A Sociological Explanation, Professor Leonard Beeghley challenges us to move beyond the emotion-driven "right to bear arms" mentality and the failed "zero tolerance" antidrug campaign and take an honest look at America's terrible homicide rate compared to the rest of the world. "...(W)e do not have to live with a high rate of homicide, We choose to live with it," he concludes. And sure enough, we stare blandly at the latest murder story on the ten o'clock news instead of addressing the root causes of availabilty of guns and an insane war against drugs that enhances the violence around us.
Move beyond complacency, and get angry about our violent culture. And look to Dr. Beeghley's for an immediately difficult but logical prescription of change.

Beeghley shows the differences between European countries and the U.S. to be huge. Even the U.S. regions with the lowest homocide rates are much greater than for European countries. Likewise, the differences in homocide rates between U.S. regions regardless of race are huge. Beeghley shows how the overabundance of cheap hand guns, drug dealing and race all have correlations with a uniquely American tragedy. He also examines the factors that influence whether an individual will use deadly violence to "solve a problem." Homocide complements The Blank Slate and The Bell Curve in understanding and, hopefully, improving the society future generations will live in.

We Americans like to think that we're somehow different from all the other human beings on the planet. Well, apparently, we are, and that's not always a good thing. To investigate the roots of America's phenomenal rate of homicide, Dr. Beeghley takes his readers on a sociological tour through the history of homicide in western society, and he does it in a style that is accessible to those of us who lack a Ph.D. in sociology. Those among us who believe that change is possible will be encouraged to see his thoughtful suggestions for tackling the issues that make the U.S. such a deadly place. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent book, appropriate for adoption in undergraduate criminology courses or simply for reading by the general public. Not the same old stuff about homicides, but actually some creativity and theoretical perspectives. A great book to make you think not only about the trees, but also the forest.
