    Demonstrating the normality of mass murder, this study explores the motives that have provided the psychological underpinnings and rationale for genocidal killings, ancient and modern. It also examines the conflict mitigation mechanisms developed by both pre- state and state societies and why such ways of limiting violence do sometimes fail, offering a better understanding of - and therefore a better chance of preventing - mass killings.
