Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Building on past work, the authors outline an integrated model for linking suicide and homicide and show how that research from this perspective can further our understanding of violence. Specifically, they show that research based on this model provides new insights into how structural and cultural factors combine to produce high homicide levels in the American South and cross-national difference in lethal violence rates. In conclusion, they evaluate the model's utility, address possible criticisms of this perspective, and suggest avenues for further investigations of lethal violence.

"This book is a nice blend of theorizing and empirical assessment. The authors use some sophisticated analysis techniques including nonlinear regression, J. W. betas, Cook's D test for outliers, and ridge regressions. It provides excellent reviews of the theory and literature most relevant to the problems at hand." -- Steven Stack, Wayne State University

"This book reviews, defends, and extends an important research and theoretical tradition in the social and behavioral sciences. It makes a valuable contribution not only to that tradition but to general theories of lethal violence. The level of theoretical and methodological sophistication evidenced in the book is exemplary. The authors have done an excellent job of recognizing and overcoming theoretical weaknesses of previous studies that have used the stream of lethal violence analogy." -- James F. Short, Jr., Washington State University
