The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined by Steven Pinker ISBN 13: 9780143122012

ISBN 10: 0143122010

Paperback; New York: Penguin Books, 2012-09-25; ISBN-13: 978-0143122012

A provocative history of violence—from the New York Times bestselling author of The Stuff of Thought and The Blank Slate Believe it or not, today we may be living in the most peaceful moment in our species' existence. In his gripping and controversial new work, New York Times bestselling author Steven Pinker shows that despite the ceaseless news about war, crime, and terrorism, violence has actually been in decline over long stretches of history. Exploding myths about humankind's inherent violence and the curse of modernity, this ambitious book continues Pinker's exploration of the essence of human nature, mixing psychology and history to provide a remarkable picture of an increasingly enlightened world.
