Emotions, Nationalism, And War
In this book, the author argues that the roots of protracted conflict lie in unacknowledged feelings of shame and rage. He builds from the assumption that the social bond is a real and palpable phenomena and that in every type of human contact the bond is built, maintained, repaired, or damaged.
