Summary: " Don't Shoot will do for the fight against violence what Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did for the environmental movement a generation ago." Malcolm Gladwell "Kennedy.argues for a crime-fighting program that makes a lot more sense than anything you're likely to hear about in Washington (or, for that matter, your local statehouse). The book reads like a thriller, but it's full of commonsense solutions to a few seemingly insurmountable problems. Reading it left us more hopeful for America's dangerous places and the millions of people who inhabit them." Very Short List "Fascinating.Kennedy''s argument is solid, and he shows again and again that many of our approaches to crime are done to make an electorate feel good, without changing basic dynamics that drive the drug trade.Understanding and knowledge, more than guns and handcuffs, are weapons in the war on crime that last for generations." Seattle Times "For the last few years, from roughly the spot on the Venn diagram of intellectual culture where Malcolm Gladwell and David Simon overlap, some intriguing flares have been set off by a crime theorist named David M. Kennedy. Kennedy's work suggested that optimism was possible.What is brilliant about [it] is its specificity, its insistence that street violence has its own special contours and patterns that can be understood, and manipulated, and that crime is only about crime. that maybe crime itself [can] be bargained with." New Republic "Kennedy tells me that this work can cut the nation's homicide rate in half. Read his important book - part jeremiad, part gripping crime thriller - and you will believe him.The approach is simple, but not easy. It takes tremendous, continuous cooperation - reaching across political, organizational, and cultural divides. This is how we, as a nation, can and must finally back out of the rolling destruction, by death and mass incarceration, of our cities, our society, and our moral character." Boston Globe "An unlikely criminal-justice pioneer revisits his innovative, immensely successful crusade against youth homicide in America''s worst neighborhoods. A valuable textnot just for the solution, but also for the refreshing philosophy behind it." Kirkus Reviews "In a matter-of-fact, street-smart style. Kennedy explains his remarkably effective strategies for combating violent crime. This heartfelt book shows what can happen when police, gangs, and communities come together to address some of America''s most intractable social problems." Publishers Weekly , starred review "The good news about the drug- and gang-related violence epidemic is that it can be controlled and substantially reduced. As proof, you only have to read David Kennedy's wonderful new book Don't Shoot. Now being tried in over 70 communities, David's campaign is expanding to have the national and international impact it deserves." Bill Bratton, chairman of Kroll, former chief of police of the Los Angeles Police Department " Don''t Shoot is a work of moral philosophy that reads like a crime novelImmanuel Kant meets Joseph Wambaugh. It's a fascinating, inspiring, and wonderfully well written story of one man''s quest to solve a problem no one thought could be solved: the scourge of inner city gang violence. This is a vitally important work that has the potential to usher in a new era in policing." John Seabrook, author of Flash of Genius "Represents one of a small number of 'big ideas' revolutionizing crime control, especially policing and prosecution. Shame on any city, police department, or prosecutor's office that isn't learning from [Kennedy's] experience. What Don't Shoot documents really matters." George Kelling, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, professor of Criminal Justice at Rutgers University, and fellow in the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University "Kennedy's ideas extend beyond community policing and serve to revolutionize the ent.
