The Story of a Gun
Erik Larson: Lethal Passage Erik Larson: Lethal Passage

This devastating book begins with an account of a crime that is by now almost commonplace: on December 16, 1988, sixteen-year-old Nicholas Elliot walked into his Virginia high school with a Cobray M-11/9 and several hundred rounds of ammunition tucked in his backpack. By day's end, he had killed one teacher and severely wounded another.

In Lethal Passage Erik Larson shows us how a disturbed teenager was able to buy a weapon advertised as „the gun that made the eighties roar.” In so doing, he not only illuminates America's gun culture – its manufacturers, dealers, buffs, and propagandists – but also offers concrete solutions to our national epidemic of death by firearm. The result is a book that can – and should – save lives, and that has already become an essential text in the gun-control debate.

1995-től a borítón a „How the Travels of a Single Handgun Expose the Roots of America's Gun Crisis” alcím is olvasható.
