New York: Metropolitan Books, 1997. First Edition . Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine Condition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bound in the publisher's original red boards with a black cloth spine stamped in silver.

Synopsis

What lies behind the human attraction to violence? Why do we glorify war, seeing it as an almost sacred undertaking? Barbara Ehrenreich is known for the originality and clarity of her thinking, and in Blood Rites she proposes a radical new theory about our attitudes to bloodshed. From the trenches of Verdun to today's front lines, Ehrenreich traces the history of warfare back to our prehistoric ancestors' terrifying experiences of being hunted by other carnivores. Written with wit, tenacity and intellectual flair, this is vintage Ehrenreich, and an account that will transform our understanding of human conflict.
