War : a cruel necessity? : the bases of institutionalized violence

edited by Robert A. Hinde and Helen E. Watson

This is an examination of the forces that sustain war as an institution. The persistence of violence is considered over a wide geographical range and the authors examine such factors as the ways in which the motivation for war is socialized in children and fed by militarism, the myths of war in the popular imagination and the representation of war by the media.
