The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker

Eric says:In The Better Angels of Our Nature, Steven Pinker outlines the history and decline of human violence from the ancient to the modern world. He makes a convincing case by presenting well-researched data, graphs, charts, and statistics in a pleasing narrative style peppered tension-breaking humor. This book is an excellent examination of how, despite what the headlines and cable news outlets would have you believe, we are currently living in the safest, least violent time in human history.”
