The images are seared into our memory. Teenagers running from classrooms in terror. Others hiding under desks. Shots fired. A bomb explodes. Smoke and panic flash through the corridors. Several students are executed. The place: Columbine High School. The event: the bloodiest high school shooting in United States history.

What motivates children to commit violent crime? How might society be responsible? Are some children and teens biologically prone to violent behavior?

In this jargon-free book, Dr. Raymond B. Flannery, Jr., a nationally recognized expert on violent behavior and its stressful consequences, begins by reviewing the causes of youth violence.
