Reviews of Gun Mania

“Sociological, political and emotionally intelligent, this is a practical work that explores the deeper considerations that underlie gun culture and the attitudes towards how to 'fix' a mislabeled problem ... Thatcher moves from exploration to exploration and builds his points well with the use of statistics and historical, cultural information ... His comparisons are intelligent and fully aware of the worldwide issues surrounding violent crime as well as the close-up problems that people face in daily life in the United States of America today.  Gun Mania delivers exactly what it promises: a brand new perspective that has been learned the hard way and one that will only be resolved when people take more notice of excellent and well-supported ideas like those in this book.”
K.C. Finn, Readers' Favorite  Complete Review

“Another big plus to this survey over other discussions of gun rights and issues lies in Thatcher's ability to gather statistics and present and discuss them in a reasoned manner to reach all readers, whether their opinions be pro-gun, anti-gun, or lie somewhere in the middle ... the kind of book that competitors may aspire to, but few achieve.  Gun Mania offers a reasoned analysis of guns in society which surveys their history, evolution, impact, and psychological influence.  No collection strong in social issues in general, cultural cross-comparisons, or gun control politics should be without this well-reasoned study.”
