Elliott Currie is Professor of Criminology, Law, and Society at the University of California, Irvine.
Henry N. Pontell is a Distinguished Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York.
"Elliott Currie reminds us that violent crime in America is not an intractable curse but a product of social arrangements and crime policies that are within our power to change. Informed by comparative perspectives, he brilliantly unpacks the causes of violence, showing that a different future can be chosen. Short in length but long in insight, The Roots of Danger is a volume that all criminologists should read--and then assign in the courses that they teach."--Francis T. Cullen, University of Cincinnati
