Preventing Lethal Violence in New Orleans, A Great American Cityby Lydia Voigt, Dee Wood Harper, and William E. Thornton Jr.
Foreword by Robert Sampson
Preventing Lethal Violence in New Orleans is inspired by the conference of the same name held in October 2012 at Loyola University in New Orleans and offers a sample of the presentations and roundtable discussions related to the historical and cultural uniqueness of New Orleans and its record of homicides over the years. Special attention is given to innovative research evidence on the most promising programs that may be applied to New Orleans addressing the problem of interpersonal lethal violence, its distribution across the city, epidemiological patterns and structural etiology, and the ways to ameliorate it through community efforts.
