Though the book's contributors - who include Sarah Sun Beale, Sanford Levinson, and Jerome H. Skolnick - operate from a wide variety of political perspectives and methodological approaches, a central desire unifies the book: to end the polarization that characterizes the debate on guns, and to generate reasonable and practical gun policies in the United States."--Jacket."
