Looking at trends in violence from the individual to the global levels, Understanding and Preventing Violence traces the influence of sexuality and death anxiety on human mentality and suggests ways to reverse the increase in destructive behavior. It helps criminologists with profiling and spotting trends and aids psychologists by deepening the understanding of their severely character-disordered or sociopathic patients. The author delves into the reasons and motivations prompting destructive behavior in order to promote a constructive reaction to what has become commonplace in society - senseless violent acts.
