Summary
Working to reconcile the Christian dictum to "love one's neighbor as oneself" with evidence of U.S. sociopolitical aggression, including slavery, corporal punishment of children, and Indian removal, Barnes focuses on aggressors--rather than the weak or abused--to understand paradoxical relationships between empathy, violence, and religion that took hold so strongly in nineteenth-century American culture
