The Culture of Violence Part Four

Writing this final installment on my cultural violence series has been very difficult. I know what I want to say in a rather amorphous way, but finding the words to explain my point of this whole series has been much like a difficult birth.

The Culture of Violence Part Three

Culture is about symbols and show cultural analysis is symbolic analysis. What we are going to do today is analyze a few of the most important symbols underlying American culture.
