-during sale-The Roots of Evil : the origins of genocide and other group violence / Ervin Staub

£8.99

Product description

This paperback book is in very good condition. The cover has slight edge wear, but is otherwise in very good condition. Internally there are a few inked marginal annotations on 5 pages (pages 25-29) but otherwise the pages are in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked.

How can human beings kill or brutalise multitudes of other human beings? Focusing particularly on genocide, Erwin Staub explores the psychology of group aggression. He sketches a conceptual framework for the many influences on one group's desire to harm another and within this framework, considers four historical examples of genocide.
"Staub offers us a multi-textured psychological understanding of genocide and group violence generally, as well as some concrete proposals for promoting caring, connection, and nonaggression. The book is well written and well organized; largely devoid of psychological jargon, yet conceptually rich, it should be easily comprehended by all. While it is written from the analytical perspective of a scholar, it is illuminated by the humane spirit of a man who, as a Hungarian Jew, experienced the horrors of the Holocaust. It is a provocative book from which scholars, students and the general public can benefit greatly." Pearl Oliner, Shofar
