Guns and Suicide

An American Epidemic

Michael D. Anestis

  • With rising suicide rates in the U.S., Anestis provides a much-needed understanding of suicide prevention and the critical role of means restriction
  • Shifts the conversation about gun violence to suicides by guns, which make up the majority of gun deaths in the U.S.
  • Anestis takes a poignant, balanced approach to reducing suicide risk; this is not a book about gun control
  • Masterfully describes scientific evidence and data in accessible prose that will appeal to a large audience interested in issues related to suicide and gun violence
