The Violence Project is an examination of the phenomenon of mass shootings in America and an urgent call to implement evidence-based strategies to stop these tragedies.

Using data from groundbreaking research on mass shooters, including direct accounts from the perpetrators themselves, The Violence Project charts new pathways to prevention and innovative ways to stop the social contagion of violence. Peterson and Densley have examined hundreds of data points in the life histories of more than 170 mass shooters, from their childhood and adolescence to their mental health and motives, aiming to establish the root causes of mass shootings and figure out how to stop them. They’ve also interviewed living perpetrators of mass shootings and people who knew them, shooting survivors, victims’ families, first responders and leading experts, gaining a comprehensive understanding of the real stories, rather than the sensationalised media narratives that too often prevail. Instead of offering mere thoughts and prayers for the victims of these crimes, this book shares data-driven solutions for exactly what we must do – at the individual level, in our communities and as a country – to put an end to these tragedies that have defined our era.

'One of the most comprehensive studies of the subject.'
The Wall Street Journal

'A distressing, critical study in the understanding, processing, and prevention of mass-casualty gun violence.'
Kirkus Reviews

'Insightful and cautiously optimistic ... the authors' nuanced portraits of mass shooters buttress the case that these tragedies "are not an inevitable fact of American life; they're preventable."'
Publishers Weekly
