Violence: The Enduring Problem explores a number of different types of both individual and collective violent acts and examines the linkages, behaviors, ideas, perceptions, and justifications that connect these different types of violence. Inspired generally by the fear of the pervasive violence in the world, the text also addresses legislative, social, and political efforts to curb violent behavior. This book differs from many of the books on violence in that it incorporates a broad interdisciplinary approach to analyzing the patterns and correlates of violence using the most up-to-date research and theories and presents them in a style intended to be accessible to a wide audience of readers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For undergraduates it offers a broader understanding of violence and for this and other reasons, it is better than its competitor." -- Drew Humphries
"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
