Description - Violent Night by Steve Hall
Why have our night-time cities become war zones? This is the time and place when cities are taken over by young men in search of alcohol, drugs, another club or a fight. Current public policy has patently failed to keep on top of the new trends in both consumption and destruction which make urban centers no-go areas. Presenting an original approach, Violent Night uses powerful insider accounts to uncover the underlying causes of both sanctioned, professional male violence and criminal acts. Interviews with the police, private security personnel, gangsters and the victims of violence reveal the complex emotions that surround both the perpetration and resolution of crime. Violent Night shows that a new approach is needed to successfully rehabilitate a culture struggling and failing to deal with escalating violent crime.
