December Case Study: World Becoming Less Violent Summary, by Seth Borenstein

Dec 1, 2011 10:25:00 AM / by Tim McCarthy

 

Editor's Note:  While not a classic case study, as we usually place here, the article below by Seth Borenstein summarizes research and findings from the leading authority on violence, Steven Pinker, with summary facts and figures and some corroborating evidence as well.  Perhaps the findings will surprise you as they did me.  The quote that captures the point the best is "The decline of violence may be the most significant and least appreciated development in the history of our species.”
