The Better Angels of Our Nature

Why Violence Has Declined
Stephen Pinker

Stephen Pinker's work has largely followed the Evolutionary Psychology view of human nature, which often seems to neglect the importance of culture as a force in the human condition. This book is a clear endorsement of the power of culture to dramatically transform the human condition by reducing violence.
