Summary
  • Strain traces our modern-day conception of violence from the struggle to survive on the American frontier, through evolving gender roles in recent generations, to the hysteria surrounding video and role-playing games and the disturbing phenomenon of school shootings. The result is nothing less than a profound meditation on American violence and a primer on how to understand what can often appear to be an alarmingly dangerous nation. --Book Jacket
  • When incidents of extreme violence flare in America, all too often they are framed as isolated aberrations. Nothing could be further from the truth, Christopher Strain argues in Reload: Rethinking Violence in American Life. The unpleasant fact, as this highly readable study shows, is that violence is inextricably woven into the fabric of our national heritage and experience. --
