"This timely book presents detailed studies of human conflict from all round the world in many different periods from prehistory to the modern era. It is a showcase for the value of scientific analysis of human remains in revealing human brutality across time and culture. It will be required reading for archaeologists, historians, biological anthropologists and others interested in the study of violence in the past. A delightfully grisly read!" - Mike Parker Pearson, University College London, UK. "...notable contributors move beyond description and draw insightful inferences about violence and its links to gender, social status, and citizenship. Summing Up: Recommended." -P. L. Geller, University of Miami, USA, in CHOICE
