Description: Violence: The Enduring Problem explores a number of different types of both individual and collective violent acts and examine the linkages, behaviours, ideas, perceptions, and justifications that connect these different types of violence. Inspired generally by the fear of the pervasive violence in the world, the text also addresses legislative, social, and political efforts to curb violent behaviour.
