Additional Book Details

This Second Edition of Violence: The Enduring Problem offers an interdisciplinary and reader-friendly exploration of the many types of individual and collective violent acts—examining the linkages, behaviors, ideas, perceptions, and justifications that connect these types of violence. Inspired by the fear of pervasive violence in the world, authors Alex Alvarez and Ronet Bachman address the various legislative, social, and political efforts to curb violent behavior. They expertly incorporate the most up-to-date research and theories to help students analyze the patterns and correlates of violence. While most texts of this type simply cover individual acts of violence, this book presents a broader perspective, covering more collective violence activities: terrorism, mob violence, and genocide.
