Abstract editore Steven Pinker's book The Better Angels of Our Nature is only the latest work to argue that the modern world has become a safer, less violent, and more humane place. However, as this expansive volume demonstrates, neither the amount of violence nor its intensity has undergone significant change since the Enlightenment - but what has changed is that the forms and visibility of violent acts have been radically transformed. Despite the fact that for over two centuries a morally critical stance towards violence has been invoked as a defining feature of enlightened civilization, violence has continued to be an inherent characteristic of modern and so-called civilized societies. By exploring the complex relationships among these "civilized" aspirations, the reality of violence, and its depiction, the contributions gathered here help to reshape the debate over violence in modern societies and undermine teleological and reassuring narratives of progress.
