Just a quick reminder, as it seems somehow newly relevant: Harvard professor Steven Pinker, who last week landed in third place on Prospect magazine's 'World Thinkers' list, referred to The Most Remarkable Woman in England on Twitter as 'A fascinating real-life murder story.' (3 October 2012).
High praise indeed.
For those interested in a much, much (much!) broader analysis of violence than my own book's individual case study, Pinker's The Better Angels of Our Nature is well worth your time.
