about

“If I could give each of you a graduation present, it would be this—the most inspiring book I''ve ever read."
Bill Gates (May, 2017)

A provocative history of violence—from the New York Times bestselling author of The Stuff of ThoughtThe Blank Slate, and Enlightenment Now.

Believe it or not, today we may be living in the most peaceful moment in our species'' existence. In his gripping and controversial new work, New York Times bestselling author Steven Pinker shows that despite the ceaseless news about war, crime, and terrorism, violence has actually been in decline over long stretches of history. Exploding myths about humankind''s inherent violence and the curse of modernity, this ambitious book continues Pinker''s exploration of the essence of human nature, mixing psychology and history to provide a remarkable picture of an increasingly enlightened world.

Steven Pinker is the Harvard College Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. A two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and the winner of many awards for his research, teaching, and books, he has been named one of Time''s 100 Most Influential People in the World Today and Foreign Policy''s 100 Global Thinkers.
