Violence
The Enduring Problem

Fifth Edition


March 2024 | 488 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Fifth Edition of Violence: The Enduring Problem offers an interdisciplinary and reader-friendly exploration of the patterns and correlations of individual and collective violent acts using the most contemporary research, theories, and cases. Responding to concerns regarding pervasive domestic and global violence, authors Alex Alvarez and Ronet Bachman address the various legislative, social, and political efforts to curb violent behavior. They incorporate a wide range of the most current cases to help readers interpret the nature and dynamics of various forms of violence. This book stands apart from other texts with its broad perspective that includes coverage of collective acts of violence such as terrorism, mob violence, and genocide.
