Stevens, a psychiatrist, provides insight into the nature and origins of armed conflict in this discussion for general readers, which is presented in a compact format 5.25x7.5"). Combining concepts of Jungian archetypes with evidence from the behavioral and biological sciences, he exposes war as an ancient propensity rooted in human psychology, particularly in the psychology and anatomy of the human male. He describes age-old techniques that are still used today to activate the warrior archetype in the masculine psyche, and shows how leaders exploit unconscious fantasies to persuade populations to go to war.
