It synthesizes diverse strands of empirical and theoretical knowledge to trace the development of culture as a source of morality; identity; self-esteem;and meaning as well as a driver of domination and upheaval. Extended examples from past and ongoing hostilities also spotlight the resilience of culture in the aftermath of disruption and trauma; and the possibility of reconciliation between conflicting cultures. The stimulating insights included here have far-reaching implications for education; intergroup relations; psychology; politics; and social policy.
