Made many great assertions. With little evidence to back any of them up. Suffers from the same problem of many in academia in that it dramatically widens the scope of what it calls "violence" to include many scores of topics that are not actually violent, and many of which demonstrably do not exist, at least not in the ways their proponents argue. But very well written, despite its problems in certain particular topics.
