The Better Angels of Our Nature
Why Violence Has DeclinedAudiobook CD - 2011
For most of history, war, slavery, infanticide, child abuse, assassinations, pogroms, gruesome punishments, deadly quarrels, and genocide were ordinary features of life. But today, Steven Pinker shows all these forms of violence have dwindled and are widely condemned. How has this happened? This groundbreaking book continues Pinker's exploration into the essence of human nature, mixing psychology and history to provide a remarkable picture of an increasingly nonviolent world.
