(This book) provides an authoritative and absorbing ins ig h t in to t hi s basic aspect of human behaviour, and stresses the need for fuller study by psychologists of armed group conflict." Two small surface areas of surface paper loss on contents page, tiny corner bump on rear board, minor edge wear. D us t jac ket li ght rubbing/soiling, very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two tiny edge tears, minor browning. Very Good+/Very Good-
