This book addresses a most important subject and for that alone I'd rate it well. If there is one quotation from the book that might best hint at how valuable it is, I think it would be this:

"Most ethnologists scrupulously avoid describing how these children feel about participating in the killing or eating of their siblings."

This book exposes a deception shared by billions of people around this world. Revealing this blind spot in our conscience(that our sub-conscience is desperately trying to keep hidden) is of the utmost importance. I say this knowing how easy it is for one to causally overstate the gravity of things; this is not one of those times.

That said, there are incidental problems with it. The following criticisms are the kind I reserve for works I hold in very high regard so use these criticisms accordingly:

Some of the arguments are made by way of evidence usually of the statistical kind demonstrating relationships between variables. For that reason, some of the ideas are not convincing not because they aren't true but because I didn't see any argument made that exclude other possible variables. For example, the fantasy analysis of media (which is a fascinating tool) was used to note incidents of different themes in the media leading up to various events. What was missing from the argument was any reference to a change in those incidents before and afterward. I suspect the work he cites does indeed consider this but I didn't find it mentioned in the book so I couldn't judge the significance of those occurrences.

Another objection(which again does not detract from his main argument) is his use of the ivory tower academic definitions, language, and arguments. For an author so opposed to the overwhelming majority of academics in the field of his expertise and related fields, for a man so clearly aware of how those academics of history and sociology all hide from terrible violence and its consequences, Lloyd should apply that to fields outside his own when choosing to accept the adherents of schools of thought that endorse violence in those fields. His study of economics for example deserves more attention to those who point out the consequences of violence in treating men without empathy as if they can be modified at gunpoint and in no other way be changed, like a machine. His arguments claiming violent means could achieve the goal of charity for poor children in particular left me confused, feeling like another author had taken over. None of these sorts of claims were central to his argument but they were detours into prejudicial convictions without critical thought that I found distracting.

Amazing and enlightening exposure of human nature and evolution across the Ages and cultures to this day in terms of events that shaped our lives, our survival, according to geographic regions, centuries, and regimes. In the end, there's always hope for a better world. The survival of our species seems to be always present beyond domination and control.

It's a shame that Dr. deMause hasn't been consulted recently by some of the top-levels of the US-government.
His analysis of so-called "group-fantasies" just might turn out to be one of the most usefull and effective tools ever developed in human history in predicting collective processes and tendencies.
A man who not only succeeded in successfully predicting the murderous attack on President Ronald Reagan, but also the outbreak of the Gulf-war, just by listening very carefully to the "belly of the nation" should be considered as a very precious and innovative scientist indeed.
Nothing "paranormal" about this at all. >:-)
