Violence and the Sacred, Paperback / softback Book

Violence and the Sacred Paperback / softback

Part of the Bloomsbury Revelations series

Description

Violence and the Sacred is Rene Girard's landmark study of human evil.

Here Girard explores violence as it is represented and occurs throughout history, literature and myth. Girard's forceful and thought-provoking analyses of Biblical narrative, Greek tragedy and the lynchings and pogroms propagated by contemporary states illustrate his central argument that violence belongs to everyone and is at the heart of the sacred.
