Product Description


"Ranging from rapists and psychopaths to judges and juries, from morality and murder to retribution and reconciliation, and from incarceration and integration to the politics of punishment, this is a book for anyone interested in or touched by violence. It is one of those rare books that can change the way you perceive and analyze. It is interdisciplinary in the best sense of the word, and offers the most up-to-date look yet at the multiple origins of violence. Nowhere is there a more integrative set of studies. The book breaks new ground, demonstrating precisely why effective peacemaking polices require competent understanding of evolutionary processes."-Owen D. Jones Arizona State University
