about this item

A haunting, illustrated account of gun violence throughout American history that shows us how little things have changedShocked by the epidemic of gun violence in the United States, acclaimed writer Peter Manseau found himself absorbed by the "melancholy accidents" that once appeared im American newspapers: daily accounts of accidental gun deaths that seemed as unfortunate as they were unavoidable. In Melancholy Accidents, Manseau collects, annotates, and introduces many of these articles, painting a devastating portrait of our nation's long, bloody relationship with firearms. Illustrated with period etchings and sketches, Melancholy Accidents is a wholly unique look at the dark side of American history.
