Reviews

"Mark Anspach's Vengeance in Reverse is a brilliant integration of great themes in anthropology: reciprocity, revenge, war, sacrifice, the birth of the gods, and the anti-communal tragedy of madness. It will take its place among the works that have helped us understand both the bright and dark sides of human nature and culture."
--Melvin Konner, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor, Emory University, and author of The Tangled Wing: Biological Constraints on the Human Spirit
