The Cambridge World History of Violence The Cambridge World History of Violence Series

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Fagan Garrett G., Fibiger Linda, Hudson Mark, Trundle Matthew

Couverture de l’ouvrage The Cambridge World History of Violence
The first in a four-volume set, The Cambridge World History of Violence, volume I provides a comprehensive examination of violence in prehistory and the ancient world. Covering the Palaeolithic through to the end of classical antiquity, the chapters take a global perspective spanning sub-Saharan Africa, the Near East, Europe, India, China, Japan and Central America. Unlike many previous works, this book does not focus only on warfare but examines violence as a broader phenomenon. The historical approach complements, and in some cases critiques, previous research on the anthropology and psychology of violence in the human story. Written by a team of contributors who are experts in each of their respective fields, volume I will be of particular interest to anyone fascinated by archaeology and the ancient world.
