Summary
Summary: "Felicity de Zulueta challenges the view that we are innately violent and argues that violence is a preventable condition that usually begins at home. Here she explores how pain, particularly the pain of humiliation, resulting from either childhood abuse or subsequent adult traumatisation, can lead to violence. For the second edition, this important text has been fully updated and now includes a valuable analysis of terrorism."--BOOK JACKET
