Evil : Inside Human Violence and Cruelty - 96 edition

Summary: Integrating evidence from psychology, criminology, sociology, history, anthropology, and other disciplines to provide insight into the roots of cruelty and violence, Baumeister finds vivid examples, both historical and modern, that address compelling human issues: How do "ordinary" people find themselves beating their wives? Murdering rival gang members? Torturing political prisoners? Betraying their colleagues to the secret police? Why do cycles of revenge ...show more so often escalate? With an examination of our culture's myths about evil, the book progresses through the "whys" of evil toward a discussion of a paradox in human psychology - our tendency toward guilt, a natural mechanism that suppresses evil, and our inclination toward ambivalence, a feeling that enables evil to flourish. Baumeister casts new light on these issues as he examines the gap between the victim's viewpoint and that of the perpetrator, and also explores various elements behind evil, from egotism and revenge to idealism and sadism. A fascinating study of one of humankind's oldest problems, Evil has profound implications for the way we conduct our lives and govern our society. ...show less
