When Push Comes to Shove examines the ways in which people define and respond to confrontations and interpersonal dilemmas in their lives. It includes insights from constructionist, interactionist, and criminal event perspectives to present the situational factors that contribute to conflict. The recent revelation that violence is connected with public and private life, and the realization that mainstream society tolerates many forms of violence, leads Kennedy and Forde to explore the circumstances when people use or don't use violent means to solve everyday disputes.
