Most human violence is carried out by men. Male violence could even be described as the major source of human suffering. Yet it is so deep-rooted in biology and culture that is often seems impossible to combat. Male Violence examines this issue from a wide range of perspectives. The contributors discuss its origins in childhood, its adult forms within and outside the family, and a variety of theoretical approaches that can help us understand it. In doing so, Male Violence raises fundamental questions about values which are accepted and unchallenged by the majority of people living in the modern world.Archer, John is the author of 'Male Violence' with ISBN 9780415089623 and ISBN 041508962X.
