The American Dream and the Kalashnikov Nightmare: Globalisation and Weaponisation

The author of Gun Crime in Global Contexts speaks about gun crime and violence, the politics of gun control and the ‘sociology of the gun’. In particular, Peter provides a synthesis of the various disciplines (from criminology, to arms control, international relations and peace studies) within which firearm proliferation and misuse is discussed, which is then complemented by a preliminary analysis of the dynamics of neo-liberal globalisation and weaponisation.
