Violence : a very short introduction / by Dwyer, Philip G.,author.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 115-123) and index."Violence is one of humanity's most enduring traits; a phenomenon that all cultures and societies, across time and space, share. However, not all groups or individuals are equally violent, and nor does violence exist with the same intensity across societies. This Very Short Introduction by Philip Dwyer examines the more visible, physical acts of violence in the modern world, looking at the long history of the subject, and disputing the claim that violence is diminishing. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of violence from the interpersonal and gendered through to the collective and religious. To understand different attitudes towards violence, past and present, Dwyer argues that they are best placed in their specific cultural, social, economic, and political contexts."--

The Violence Project : How to Stop a Mass Shooting Epidemic. by Peterson, Jillian.; Densley, James.;
Cover -- Title Page -- Copyright Page -- Dedication -- Contents -- Chapter 1: Monsters -- Chapter 2: America -- Chapter 3: Trauma -- Chapter 4: Crisis -- Chapter 5: Relationships -- Chapter 6: Proof -- Chapter 7: Hate -- Chapter 8: Opportunity -- Chapter 9: Hope -- Acknowledgments -- Afterword -- Notes -- Index of Searchable Terms.Using research data, including first-person accounts from the perpetrators themselves, a special investigator and psychologist and a sociologist, who built The Violence Project, a comprehensive database of mass shooters, share their solutions for putting an end to these tragedies that have defined the modern era. Frustrated by reactionary policy conversations that never seemed to convert into meaningful action, Peterson and Densley built The Violence Project, the first comprehensive database of mass shooters. Their goal was to establish the root causes of mass shootings and figure out how to stop them by examining hundreds of data points in the life histories of more than 170 mass shooters-- from their childhood and adolescence to their mental health and motives. They have gained a comprehensive firsthand understanding of the real stories behind them, rather than the sensationalized media narratives that too often prevail. Here Peterson and Densley share their data-driven solutions for exactly what we must do, at the individual level, in our communities, and as a country, to put an end to these tragedies that have defined our modern era.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
