's review

really liked it

A fascinating book, concerning the anthropological underpinnings of personal and social violence. Girard makes his case with a wide variety of sources, and makes a convincing non-religious argument regarding the uniqueness of the Jewish & Christian religions in regards to repudiating that violence.
