A social psychologist based at Columbia University, Lindner takes us across history and into nations worldwide to show how emotion spurs hierarchies of domination and therefore causes subjugation, human rights violations, abuse, conflict, and fighting. She spotlights results ranging from the binding and subsequent deforming of Chinese women's feet, to periods of slavery, bondage, feudalism, apartheid, and other unjust events across time. Related actions from political domination internationally, to spousal or child abuse on the homefront are addressed. Lindner looks at how widely divergent societies - from the Japan of Samurais, to the Meso America of Aztecs, up to the modern Iraq at war - are driven by hierarchies of emotionally-fueled control with rigid domination.

Incorporating classic literature and emerging research, Lindner also explains the means that can enable rationality to override emotion, in order to reduce domination and increase human dignity, which is not necessarily an end-all for conflict, but a beginning to productive and fair, so-called good conflict.
