Summary
"Drawing from a remarkable range of sources, the editors juxtapose the routine violence of everyday life against the sudden outcropping of unexpected, extraordinary violence such as the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide, the state violence of Argentina's Dirty War, revolution, vigilante "justice, " and organized criminal violence." "In Violence in War and Peace, Scheper-Hughes and Bourgois offer a thought-provoking tool for students and thinkers from all walks of life. It is an exploration of violence at the broadest levels: personal, social, and political."--BOOK JACKET
