The purpose of this remarkable book is to analyse questions that many Americans find themselves asking each day as the sad events of the day are reported in the news: What has gone wrong with the families of this country? Why is the problem of violent crime so bad, particularly among the young, among ethnic minorities, and in large cities? This book crystallises these questions. This book develops and thoroughly explores the theory that antisocial behaviour is an adaptive response to low parental investment.
