Product description

Review

"[R]eading this book might be hazardous to your equanimity. As you study the exceptionally well-written and well thought out chapters you may question some of your own basic ethical, moral and philosophical tenets and consequently experience increasing levels of anxiety and depression. Nevertheless, I hope a lot of you read the book, including public policymakers--those who are literate of course. It contains not only penetrting analyses of the root causes of the violence that is threatening to destroy our civilization, but also some promising violence-reduction strategies....I recommend you go directly to your bookstore or library and get a copy. If you belong to a book club, bring it to their attention. If you know any public policymakers, send them a copy. Time is getting short, so hurry!"-Metapsychology

"An evolutionary perspective on human violence is both new and important . . . and fortunately, it seems to be reaching the breakthrough stage, thanks in part to this impressive volume. The problem of violence is simply too large to be left to the same tired, outmoded ways of thinking that have so long prevailed in the social sciences; the editors and contributors to Evolutionary Psychology and Violence should be congratulated for a difficult task, beautifully accomplished."-David P. Barash University of Washington author of Understanding Violence
