    About the Authors
    • This four-volume Cambridge World History of Violence is the first collection of its kind to look at violence across different periods of human history and different regions of the world. It capitalises on the growing scholarly interest in the history of violence, which is emerging as one of the key intellectual issues of our time. The volumes take into account the latest scholarship in the field and comprise the work of nearly 140 scholars, who have contributed substantial chapters to provide an authoritative treatment of violence from a multiplicity of perspectives. The collection thus offers the reader a wide-ranging thematic treatment of the historical contexts of different types of violence, as well as a compendium of experience shared by peoples across time.

      • · Provides the first long-term study of violence, allowing us to place today's world and its social problems in a much broader chronological context. · Provides an accessible compendium to non-specialist readers; a readable account of the history of this crucial phenomenon; and a forward-looking project, exploring where current trends in research might, or should, lead over the coming years. · The latest scholarship in a dynamic field, taking a specifically historical stance and focusing squarely on the changing nature of violence from pre-historic times to the present.
