The Evolution of SAMM

Show Summary Details


This chapter traces some of the patterns in the early evolution of Support After Murder and Manslaughter (SAMM). Topics discussed include membership, national office, local SAMM groups, and project coordinators. It is argued that SAMM will continue to be storm-tossed, blown around by chance changes in funding, sponsors, or the balance of power and factions in its committees.
