Über diesen Titel


Violence has always been the way of human life, and most acts of violence are committed by men. But what causes them to embrace violence - in warfare, in criminal acts, in the home? Is it encouraged by parents, or is it innate? How can we begin to raise sons whose sense of self-worth will not be dependent on an atavistic concept of masculinity, and what concrete changes must we make in our child-rearing and socialization process in order to raise sons who embrace the positive masculine characterstics of initiative, independence and courage? This book addresses these questions and comes up with answers.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
