From the rear cover of this 224 page book: "For early man, anger served as a vital emergency mechanism, preparing him against life-threatening attacks. In today's society, this biologically programmed response is no longer necessary for survival. Yet it persists, its destructive powers most evident on the streets of our cities. In this provocative book, Dr. Willard Gaylin explores the causes and effects of anger, examining such questions as: What do we do with a set of built-in directives that diminish rather than enhance our chances for survival? What are the effects of this dangerous runaway emotion? Can we contain it? Must we endure it? In analyzing how anger functions both biologically and socially, Dr. Gaylin offers innovative ways to diminish its damage and bring a sense of community back into our lives."
