Description

  • Vintage Books
  • Passionate, courageous, and at times controversial, The Anatomy of Violence is a ground-breaking work that will
    challenge your core human values and perspectives on violence.

    Why do some kids from good environments become mass murderers? Is there actually such a thing as a natural born killer?
    And, if so, what can we do to identify and treat those born with a predisposition to criminal behavior? For more than
    three decades Adrian Raine has sought answers to these questions through his pioneering research on the biological basis
    for violence. In this book, he presents the growing body of evidence that shows how genetics and environmental
    influences can conspire to create a criminal brain, and how something as seemingly innocent as a low resting heart rate
    can give rise to a violent personality. Bristling with ingenious experiments, surprising data, and shocking case
    studies, this is also a clear-eyed inquiry into the thorny ethical issues this science raises about prevention and
    punishment.
