As material objects, guns are one of the simplest mechanical tools. As cultural, social, political, and historical objects, however, guns are rich with complex and contested significance. What guns mean, why they matter, and what policies should be undertaken to regulate guns remain issues of vigorous scholarly and public debate. This interdisciplinary handbook presents the core debates - past, present, and future - in gun studies across history, sociology, gender studies, political science, criminology and economics. Global in focus, it provides a critical window into the multifaceted ways in which guns take on social significance: as violent weapons; as cultural symbols; as political statements; and as market commodities.
