Larry Ray's book gives an excellent insight into the history, phenomena, causes and consequences of violence. It refers to recent empirical studies as well as to the main approaches to understanding the phenomena of violence in societies. It is an introduction like a report on current findings. I have read the book as a German researcher on violence and will use it in my seminars and courses.
