"This second edition has been fully updated and now also contains
an analysis of terrorism."
-- Human Givens Journal
Violence is all around us; yet, despite its widespread prevalence, we remain unclear about its causes. In this book Felicity de Zulueta - begins by defining "violence" as distinct from "aggression", and then attempts to trace its origins, highlighting the polarization between those who believe mankind to be innately violent and those who see violence as the outcome of man's life experiences. As a result of her investigations, the author suggests that the current high level of violence may well be linked to the effects of childhood and adult trauma which appear to be far more widespread than has hitherto been acknowledged. These findings are relevant to understanding why "normal" people can become violent in certain conditions. This is a second edition and has been fully updated. A new chapter on terrorism has been added.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is serious about understanding more about this subject. I have read many books on or around this subject including many of the books referenced in this book and this adds to the understanding of this whole subject.
An excellent book.
To be fair it could be that its aimed at clinical psycotherapists and I am merely interested in the subject matter (for personal reasons) - not in any way a professional in this field.
I was recommended this by a friend (who is a mental health professional) - who thinks its suberb, I don't feel that way about it
