"This volume provides a long-needed anthology of major writings related to the subject of violence. The readings include excerpts from classic contributions of Marx and Freud along with pieces by modern thinkers such as Girard and Bourdieu and social activists from Gandhi to bin Laden. The selections are skillfully chosen to address a central theme, that violence always takes place in a context. The readings explore the idea that social, internal, ritualized, and other forms of violence are part of the processes of life and not necessarily anomalies. This is a thoughtful and arresting set of essays on an important topic that will be useful in the classroom and much discussed in the public forum."--Mark Juergensmeyer, University of California, Santa Barbara, author of "Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence"Lawrence, Bruce B. is the author of 'On Violence', published 2007 under ISBN 9780822337690 and ISBN 082233769X.
