Baker & Taylor
An eye-opening, revisionist analysis of the social and psychological roots of violence argues that violence should be approached as a problem in public health and preventative medicine, rather than one of biological or moral origins, and that shame is the common denominator that links violent perpetrators.

It's a pleasure to have a whole new concept plopped into your mind from a well written book, and this one defined the difference between TRAGEDY - where both perpetrator and victim suffer as a result of evil injustice being passed on. A thug is violent out of his sense of having been wronged, and therefore having the absolute right to ignore details like 'this victim has nothing to do with your problem'.
PATHOS - is suffering imposed by indifferent forces such as natural disasters, accidents, etc. Life has quite enough of those already.
