Killing in the Name of Identity

Killing in the name of identity

“Why do they hate us so?” Vamik Volkan has the most compelling and universal response to the riddle of our time. In this book, Volkan explains the relationship between large-group identities and massive traumas and current events and ongoing conflicts around the world, including those related to the horrific attacks of 9/11. In Killing in the Name of Identity, Volkan has taken us further and deeper, into the dark and vulnerable collective mind of ethnic, religious, cultural and national group conflict.
