Overview

A landmark work in law enforcement, community action, and social policy, this book describes a new approach to inner city violence and the epidemic of incarceration it propagates. David M. Kennedy, who engineered Boston's program involving gang members, drug dealers, cops, and neighbors, explains how youth homicides were reduced by two-thirds in the 1990s, even at the height of the crack epidemic and under a legacy of toxic racial history. This program has since been successfully duplicated in other cities.
