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.

Review:

"For undergraduates it offers a broader understanding of violence and for this and other reasons, it is better than its competitor." Author: Drew Humphries Published On: 2013-08-27

"The text is very instructive when considering the significance of violence throughout the world. The opening reference to the idea that "all violence is connected," and that we live within a "unity of human aggression" is a testament to the reality of violence within all aspects of American society." Author: Tracy Tolbert Published On: 2013-08-27

"The text gives detailed overview of violence while presenting the material in a way so that students can critically engage with the material. I would without a doubt use this book if I were to teach a violence class, and would consider using it as an ancillary in a theory class, especially at the graduate level." Author: Courtney Waid Lindberg Published On: 2013-08-27
