About this book

Thinkers and historians have long perceived violence and its control as integral to the very idea of 'Western Civilization'. Focusing on interpersonal violence and the huge role it played in human affairs in the post-medieval West, this timely collection brings together the latest interdisciplinary and historical research in the field.

'Offers twelve stimulating and generally meticulously researched essays on topics as diverse as female dismemberment in Aztec rituals, rituals of rebellion in early modern England, vengeance in sixteenth-century France, kidnapping for ransom in the Mediterranean during the long nineteenth century, beheadings in early modern Ireland, and aerial warfare between Britain and Germany during the two world wars.' - Robert Gerwarth, English Historical Review
