    21st Century Debates: Violence In SocietyFree Shipping


    Bullying at school, vandalism in the streets, parents worrying about their children going out at night, constant television reports of murder and wars: one way or another, violence affects us all. This book looks at many aspects of this complex subject, including crime, war, violence in young people's lives, violent entertainment, and the causes and effects of violence.

    It also raises some vital questions. What drives some people to commit violent acts? How can children be protected from violence both outside and inside the family? Is violent political protest ever justified? And how can we, as individuals, help to create a less violent society?

    The social and political issues strand of the '21st Century Debates' series looks at the enormous changes taking place in society at the start of the new millennium. In a world where political tensions are rising, and many traditional social structures are breaking down, this series examines the difficult decisions and awesome responsibilities faced by governments, organisations, communities and individuals concerned with the effects of such rapid change. Where are these new developments taking us? Are they leading to the kind of society in which we want to live?
