Summary

Gun Crime brings together a collection of texts drawn from a diverse range of disciplines which have contributed towards understanding the impact of gun crime within western societies. The book is divided into four interconnected sections which examine the use of firearms to commit offences. Part one explores the problems of youth, gang membership and guns in society. Part two examines the act of robbery where firearms are deployed by criminals in order to facilitate and commission robbery offences. Part three analyses the problem of violence and homicide associated with firearm offending. In the fourth and final part of the collection the texts focus on firearm injury trauma caused as a result of gun crime. The book provides insights for students and researchers, law enforcement agencies, community-based activists and policy-makers seeking to understand issues embedded within firearms offending and to develop initiatives to tackle gun crime.
