In a world in which violence in every form seems to be increasing, Erich Fromm has treated this problem with deep perception in the most original and far-reaching work of his brilliant career. Fromm asks: what is there in the conditions of human existence to lead man to the orgies of destruction and violence in which he has indulged? By drawing on the findings of anthropology, palaeontogy, psychology and history; and including striking character analyses of Stalin, Hitler and Himmler, he shows how the failure to use our capacity for love and reason results in the development of the reverse: we wish to control life absolutely, or to destroy it.

Industry Reviews

"If any single book could bring mankind to its senses, this book might qualify for that miracle...It is the product of one of the most alert, the most penetrating and the most mature minds of our time" -- Lewis Mumford * The Times * "A major work of argument and reflection on human aggression" * Economist * "A stunningly erudite book...it demands that we confront our own, and our civilization's character, if we are to understand the nature of our violence" * New Society *
