According to the book description
of Jack Eden’s Violence its Causes and
Cures, “Over the years while teaching in public schools and serving in law enforcement, the author takes note
of an increase in violence. Violence that was increasing not only in incident but in magnitude. After hearing a number of
solutions to the violence, all much too simplistic, the author tries to first list many of the reasons for violence in our
world today. Then secondly the author lists the only sure cure for violence.
The causes for violence in our
society or rather in our world today is very complicated. When most are put down in black and white, they seem very logical.
The cure for violence is really very simple. Simple, that is, when put down in black and white. When it comes to putting the
cure into effect, that becomes a horse of a different color. (Or a color that seems to offend a lot of people or that a lot
of people are unwilling to hear.) Check out the causes and the cure and see if you think you can become a part, a factor,
in a world more lovable, more peaceful, more exciting.)”
