The Predator Culture
The Roots and Intent of Organised ViolenceeBook - 2010
Drawing on case studies of organized violence--ranging from territorial wars and colonial conquests to non-state variants such as organized crime--this record offers a general theory to account for the use of force in both the state and civil sectors of society. Challenging the popular views that the dominant forms of violence are due to failings of human nature, this volume suggests that the laws and institutions favoring an approach to property rights that encourage rent seeking are responsible.
