Reviews

This is a masterful analysis of the debate over how violence should be understood, along with the author's justification of a far more precise and logical definition of the concept. A persuasive analysis of exceptional skill and elegance, the book should be read by everyone concerned about limiting the tragic effects of violence in our lives. - Robert Paul Churchill, George Washington University, USA The strength of Vorobej's proposal obviously lies in its broad scope, which is meant to capture as many heterogeneous cases of violence as possible ... [His] detailed discussion of criteria and cases does more than just introduce a definitional approach to violence by presenting fundamental theoretical and practical questions about it. - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
