The Beast Within: Why Men Are Violent

The Beast Within: Why Men Are Violent Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What causes male violence...and how can we stop it? A provocative study suggests that biology plays a definitive role in engendering murder, rape, torture, and other vicious acts. To understand brutality, start with the animal world, where male aggression ensures the survival of the species and primacy within the group. Uncover testosterone's powerful effects, the connection between the number of teenage boys in the population and patterns of violence, and (because biology is not destiny) how we can reduce lethal aggression.

Synopsis:

Thoughtful, provocative and definitely controversial, The Beast Within is essential reading for anyone concerned about violence in our society. Clearly written, extensively researched and logically reasoned, this is a book that challenges as it informs.
