Overview

VIOLENCE AND CULTURE: A CROSS-CULTURAL AND INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH brings together in a single readable volume the widest possible range of material on violence as a modern and international cultural problem. It uniquely combines comprehensive theoretical discussion with rich empirical description and analysis in a global approach. Violence, if not more prevalent, is definitely attracting more attention than ever before in academic arenas as well as the public arena. It has become a central feature of the 21st century and students and the American public are hungry to know and understand the roots of violence.
