Collective violence changes the perpetrators, the victims, and the societies in which it occurs. It targets the body, the psyche, and the socio-cultural order. How do people come to terms with these tragic events, and how are cultures affected by massive outbreaks of violence? This book is a groundbreaking collection of essays by anthropologists, psychologists and psychoanalysts, drawing on field research in many different parts of the world. Profiting from an interdisciplinary dialogue, the authors provide provocative, at times deeply troubling, insights into the darker side of humanity, and they also propose new ways of understanding the terrible things that people are capable of doing to each other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book deserves to be read, not only by anthropologists and psychoanalysts, but also by every rational being ... the book manages to indicate how an interdisciplinary approach can be developed between psychoanalysis and anthropology, leading to enriched understanding of the effects of collective trauma and violence.' South African Journal of International Affairs
'... an important shared project of understanding how the trauma of social violence not only damages cultures and individuals, but is also incorporated into their self-image.' Psychotherapy and Politics International
