Eller (Community College of Denver) surveys human violence from a wide cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective, blending accessible theoretical discussion with empirical analysis. Early chapters explore the theoretical options of three major disciplinary approaches, providing a conceptual and theoretical underpinning for discussion of the psychocultural, microsocial, and macrosocial foundations of violence and nonviolence. Six later chapters are grouped into three pairs on religious violence, political violence, and violence in American society, with case studies for each pair.
