Teen Violence
Lang
1991

Terrible teens are doing some seriously bad stuff and this book is here to tell you all about it. This is one of those social science books built for a research report. They usually come as a set of “current issues” that are targeted for middle school/high school. They all generally follow the same structure.

This book outlines those possible “causes” of violence in teens including: Nazis, gangs, video games, and drugs. There is a bit of data or quotes from articles about the topic. Nothing truly earth shattering. Also, it wasn’t as teen specific as the title would indicate.

As an aside, my inner collection development demon always avoided these sets for purchase. Aside from them being expensive, they just didn’t have the longevity. Currency is critical. Also usually the artwork and covers are not so great. We have featured many of these sets found in teen collections. If you select the category Talkin bout my generation (aka teen stuff) you will see many of these examples.

Weed and don’t look back.

  1. That photo of the police officer is just making me giggle. “Ring…ring…ring…Hello? Yes, Mrs. McQuilkin? Sorry to bother you, but, um, Timmy brought 400 vials of crack for show and tell today.”

  2. I see that racism, prejudice and hatred haven’t changed since 1991. Oh wait, they have changed. They’re even worse now. 🙁

  3. Anyone else think those photos are from the 1970s or 1980s rather than the 1990s? Especially the first one – check the hair on those Nazis!
