'A brilliant, mind-altering book' - Guardian

'One of the most important books I've read - not just this year, but ever' - Bill Gates

Believe it or not, today we may be living in the most peaceful time in our species history.

In this epic exploration of the human condition Steven Pinker shows that, despite what the news tells us, violence of all kinds has been decreasing, and why it has happened.

'May prove to be one of the great books of our time ... he writes like an angel' - Economist

'Will change the way you see the world ... Pinker's powerful ideas, vivid stories and sparkling prose make this hard to put down' - Daily Mail

'Masterly, a supremely important book' - The New York Times

'Riveting and myth-destroying' - New Statesman


AUTHOR: Steven Pinker is the Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. Until 2003, he taught in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT.
