Savage Spawn

(1999)
A non fiction book by

 
 
As the recent tragedies in Oregon, Arkansas, and Colorado Have shown, children as young as eight years old are capable of murder and violence. No community is safe from this tragic phenomenon, and experts ranging from law enforcement officials to guidance counselors are confused and conflicted about how to approach it. Now best-selling novelist Jonathan Kellerman returns to his roots as a scientist and child psychologist to dissect a problem that is attacking the core of our society: dangerous children who, in all likelihood, will grow up to be dangerous adults. Kellerman explores the "nature v. nurture" theory, discusses the legal and psychological ramification of treating such children as adult criminals, and tackles, with surprising results, the popular idea that violence in the media is to blame. More than a crash course in understanding the "Hows" and "whys" of this issue, Savage Spawn is a controversial study that will engender much needed discussion.
