Abstract

Has violence changed over the centuries? Has it always held the same meanings for us? Will it always be a given in society? Taking the sociocultural long view, this title analyses the prevalence and role of violence - from street crime to terrorist attacks, homicide to genocide - in the evolution of human and national behavior.
