"[An] engaging history of anger"-Alexandre Leskanich, Review 31

"In our own age, so driven by anger, Rosenwein's tour de force is a historical primer on where the very idea of anger has come from, what it means, and what we can do to face it."-Jacob Soll, author of The Reckoning

"A brilliantly rich investigation of the history, morality, functions, and conflicting ideas of an emotion that is all too frequently cast as either healthy or unhealthy, ethical or unethical, to be celebrated or to be overcome."-Simon May, author of Love: A History

"This is a fascinating and ambitious survey of a range of takes on anger from many traditions and time periods. The interweaving of the solid history with contemporary issues is particularly stimulating, as is the recognition that the emotion can play a constructive role."-Peter N. Stearns, author of Shame: A Brief History
