"The text is very instructive when considering the significance of violence throughout the world. The opening reference to the idea that "all violence is connected," and that we live within a "unity of human aggression" is a testament to the reality of violence within all aspects of American society." -- Tracy Tolbert
"The text gives detailed overview of violence while presenting the material in a way so that students can critically engage with the material. I would without a doubt use this book if I were to teach a violence class, and would consider using it as an ancillary in a theory class, especially at the graduate level." -- Courtney Waid Lindberg
