Don’t Shoot: One Man, A Street Fellowship, and the End of Violence in Inner City America by David M. Kennedy
- Rating: 4/5
- Required reading for any sociologist, criminologist or social worker?
- The entire strategy is based on the assumption that everyone has a common interest to end violence and drug dealing, regardless of what “side” you are on. The idea is to mobile everyone to be on the same side
- The book lays out the strategy, then how the principles are applied in different cities
- Kennedy didn’t really accept permutations to the formula — it was his way or the highway
