In These Streets: Reporting from the Front Lines of Inner-City Gun Violence

Out May 2024

A groundbreaking expose on the rise of gun violence in recent years.

"If you want to understand gun violence but don't know where to start, start here. Josiah Bates brings together gripping stories, solid research, and astute analysis―all in clear, readable language. By approaching violence as a problem to be solved and not an argument to be won, Bates leaves us with something in short supply these days: hope." 


Thomas Abt, Center for the Study and Practice of Violence Reduction at the University of Maryland and author of Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence―and a Bold New Plan for Peace in the Streets

"A well-reasoned analysis of gun violence as it plays out on the city streets."
