Esta obra demuestra que la lógica de la violencia en las guerras civiles tiene mucho menos que ver con emociones colectivas, ideologías, culturas o «avidez y agravio» de lo que realmente se creía.La manipulación de las organizaciones políticas por parte de los actores locales, que pretenden dañar a sus rivales, marca un proceso de privatización de la violencia política en mayor medida que la politización de la vida privada, tal como con más frecuencia se ha creído. Desde esta perspectiva, la violencia es un proceso que tiene lugar más a causa de la aversión humana que a causa de una predisposición hacia la violencia homicida, lo que explica la paradoja de la explosión de la violencia en contextos sociales que se caracterizaban por altos niveles de contacto interpersonal, intercambio y hasta confianza. De ahí que el comportamiento individual en la guerra civil hubiera de ser interpretado no tanto como una instancia de anomia social sino más bien como una manifestación perversa de abundante capital social.

Marriage and other long-term committed relationships are an integral part of our lives and confer many benefits. People in satisfying marriages report greater life happiness, live longer, and are less vulnerable to mental and physical illness. Unfortunately, many couples experience significant relationship distress and about half of marriages end in divorce. Among those who stay married, a notable number of couples remain in unstable, severely distressed marriages for years or even decades. Given the serious physical and psychological consequences of relationship distress and divorce for spouses and their children, it is clear that relationship science-the basic and applied study of relationship development, maintenance, and dysfunction-is of critical importance. The Oxford Handbook of Relationship Science and Couple Interventions showcases cutting-edge research in relationship science, including couple functioning, relationship education, and couple therapy. The book presents the most current definitions of and classifications for relationship dysfunction and discusses the latest research on the biological, psychological, and interpersonal causes and correlates of couple dysfunction and subsequent treatment implications. The latest findings regarding empirically supported prevention and treatment interventions for couple dysfunction are highlighted, as well as diversity and cultural issues in the context of working with couples. This Handbook will appeal to researchers who seek to understand the development of relationship distress and design interventions to prevent and treat couple distress and clinicians who are diagnosing, assessing, and treating couple dysfunction.

En Los ángeles que llevamos dentro, Steven Pinker nos expone las investigaciones que ha llevado a cabo sobre la preponderancia de la violencia a lo largo de la historia. Estas investigaciones le han llevado a concluir que, pese a las guerras actuales, vivimos en una época en la que la violencia ha disminuido enormemente respecto de tiempos pasados. Disfrutamos la paz de la que gozamos ahora porque las generaciones pasadas vivieron atenazadas por la violencia y ello les obligó a esforzarse para ponerle límites, y en el mundo contemporáneo somos nosotros quienes debemos trabajar para ponerle fin. No debemos dejarnos llevar por el optimismo pero, al menos, ahora sabemos que este es un objetivo que está a nuestro alcance.

In recent years there has been heightened interest in the clinical and legal management of families in which children resist contact with one parent and become aligned with the other following divorce. Families affected by these dynamics require disproportionate resources and time from mental health and legal professionals, and cases require a specialized clinical approach. Traditional models of individual and family therapy are not designed to address these issues, and strategies and resources for mental health and legal professionals have been extremely limited. Overcoming Parent-Child Contact Problems describes interventions for families experiencing a high conflict divorce impasse where a child is resisting contact with a parent. It examines in detail one such intervention, the Overcoming Barriers approach, involving the entire family and combining psycho-education and clinical intervention. The book is divided into two parts: Part I presents an overview of parental alienation, including clinical approaches and a critical analysis of the many challenges associated with traditional outpatient family-based interventions. Part II presents the Overcoming Barriers approach, describing core aspects of the intervention and ways to adapt its clinical techniques to outpatient practice. Overcoming Parent-Child Contact Problems is geared toward mental health clinicians and legal professionals who work with families in high conflict and where a child resists visitation with a parent.

En este libro, Seligman nos provee de las herramientas para identificar nuestros aspectos más positivos y desarrollarlos, a fin de mejorar sensiblemente nuestra vida y las de los que nos rodean. En lugar de centrarse, como la psicología tradicional, en el estudio y tratamiento de la enfermedad mental, la Psicología Positiva pone el foco en las fortalezas humanas, las que nos permiten aprender, disfrutar, ser alegres, generosos, solidarios y optimistas. El doctor Martin E. P. Seligman, eminente investigador de la psique humana y fundador de esta corriente científica, sostiene que la auténtica felicidad no sólo es posible, sino que -lejos de depender de la suerte y de los genes- puede cultivarse identificando y utilizando muchas de las fortalezas y rasgos que ya poseemos. Opinión: «Por fin la psicología se toma en serio el optimismo, la diversión y la felicidad.» Daniel Goleman, autor de La inteligencia emocional

Un extraordinario reportaje, ganador de numerosos premios internacionales, sobre el genocidio ruandés. El 6 de abril de 1994, el avión del presidente de Ruanda fue abatido por un misil. Al día siguiente el gobierno animaba a la mayoría hutu a asesinar a sus vecinos tutsis junto con aquellos hutus que intentasen protegerlos. De este modo daba comienzo el mayor genocidio de las últimas décadas. En los cien días que transcurrieron hasta que el Frente Patriótico Ruandés, la guerrilla tutsi, puso fin a la masacre haciéndose con el control del país, murieron 800.000 personas según los cálculos más conservadores, casi 10.000 al día, 400 a la hora, 7 por minuto; la mayoría de ellas a machetazos, el arma preferida. En este extraordinario reportaje -un clásico del periodismo contemporáneo- Philip Gourevitch emprende un viaje al corazón de las tinieblas para indagar en los motivos de tan atroz baño de sangre. Su prosa lúcida e inteligente desenmascara la pasividad de la comunidad internacional, que asistió paralizada a semejante carnicería, prefiriendo no asumir riesgos frente a un país que hasta el momento había sido modélico y que no tenía petróleo ni riquezas que ofrecer. El resultado, tras varios viajes por Ruanda y centenares de entrevistas y conversaciones con víctimas y verdugos, es esta sobrecogedora narración -ganadora de numerosos premios internacionales como el Guardian First Book Award, el National Book Critics Circle Award, el George Polk Book Award y el Los Angeles Times Book Prize-, que no dejará indiferente a ningún lector. Reseñas: «Inquietantemente bello y brillante, este es un libro asombrosamente bueno. Debería estar en las estanterías para siempre.» Tom Engelhardt, The Philadelphia Inquirer «El libro más importante que he leído en muchos años [...] Gourevitch examina el genocidio en Ruanda con humildad, ira, dolor y un nivel extraordinario de inteligencia política y moral.» Susie Linfield, Los Angeles Times «Gourevitch tiene la mente de un investigador combinada con la capacidad de observación de un buen novelista, y escribe como los ángeles. Este libro lo convierte en un igual de Michael Herr, Ryszard Kapuscinski y Tobias Wolff. Creo que no existe límite sobre lo que debemos esperar de él.» Robert Stone «Una crónica aleccionadora, reveladora y profundamente reflexiva.» The Boston Globe «Este absorbente relato debería ser de lectura obligada para aquellos investigadores del funcionamiento interno de los estados modernos.» The Washington Post
