520    "American violence is schizophrenic. On the one hand, many
       Americans support the creation of a powerful bureaucracy 
       of coercion made up of police and military forces in order
       to provide public security. At the same time, many of 
       those citizens also demand the private right to protect 
       their own families, home, and property. This book 
       diagnoses this schizophrenia as a product of a distinctive
       institutional history, in which private forms of violence 
       - vigilantes, private detectives, mercenary gunfighters - 
       emerged in concert with the creation of new public and 
       state forms of violence such as police departments or the 
       National Guard. This dual public and private face of 
       American violence resulted from the upending of a 
       tradition of republican governance, in which public 
       security had been indistinguishable from private effort, 
       by the nineteenth century social transformations of the 
       Civil War and the Market Revolution"--|cProvided by
