Volume 22, Issue 1 (January 1977)
A Review of Contemporary Violence
This is an academic exploration of the topic of violence as it is delineated by Dr. Wilber and his collaborators. Although the book is written primarily for law enforcement officers, it represents an objective study that approaches the subject from a number of angles—no aspect of violence is left untouched. True to its subtitle, “A Multi-Disciplinary Examination,” the volume represents the contributions of five authors, an anthropologist, a sociologist, a psychologist, and two zoologists, each taking a unique and refreshing approach. The editor relies on his own extensive background to draw the entire package together.
