About this book

Why do we fight? Have we always been fighting one another? This book examines the origins and development of human forms of organized violence from an anthropological and archaeological perspective. Kim and Kissel argue that human warfare is qualitatively different from forms of lethal, intergroup violence seen elsewhere in the natural world, and that its emergence is intimately connected to how humans evolved and to the emergence of human nature itself.

"Kim is an anthropological archaeologist, Kissel a paleoanthropologist, and together they have put together a survey of war and its origins that is more authoritative and comprehensive than any work currently on the market."
– Paul Roscoe, Department of Anthropology, University of Maine, Orono, USA

"An innovative and clearly written text, in which readers will find much to contemplate. It undoubtedly will be appreciated for years to come."
– Douglas P. Fry, Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA
