New York based award-winning author Abigail Esman’s
new breakthrough book, ” Rage: Narcissism, Patriarchy, and the Culture of Terrorism”
Draws a link between domestic abuse &Terrorism.
She educates society on the complex web that ties “Rage: Narcissism,Patriarchy, and the Culture of Terrorism” together.
Esman’s gorgeously written book maps with precision the subterranean corridors between domestic abuse and terrorism. A must-read for anyone interested in understanding—or taming—the darker corners of the human psyche.
“There is a direct link between domestic abuse and psychological terror in the home and what we see play out on our streets and across the globe when it comes to terrorists, gangs, racists, and mass shooters,” declares a ward-winning essay ist Abigail R. Esman, the author of Rage.
In the days after 9/11, Esman walked the streets of New York haunted by a feeling that was eerily familiar: the trauma of violence that hovered in the air. Friends, family, and strangers moved, walked, even stood as she her self had done earlier as a victim of domestic battery and abuse at the hands of aman who would later become a White Supremacist. Since then, Esman has studied the connections between domestic abuse and terrorism and the forces that inspire both forms of violence. In her book, Esman brings into focus the complex web that ties them together, illuminating the terrorist psyche and the cultures, both public and familial, that create it.
Esman is available to elaborate on the following:
How domestic abuse at home breeds school shooters, street gangs, White Supremacists, and terrorists.
The close and growing connections between misogyny andWhite Supremacism.
What America can do to greatly reduce acts of mass violence and terrorism.
What must be done to prevent domestic abuse from becoming public abuse?
How President Trump’s narcissism feeds a national mindset that justifies and promotes violence.
What the author, an award-winning journalist, discovered while interviewing Islamic jihadists and
How promoting women’s rights, furthering the arts, and creating educational programs can combat
How the United States is breeding a culture of terrorism that manifests violence.
With this new approach to understanding terrorism and violence, Esman presents clear explanations of pathological narcissism and its roots in shame honor cultures—both familial and sociopolitical—through portraits of terrorists and batterers, including O. J. Simpson, Osama bin Laden, Anders Breivik, and Dylann Roof.
“A critical purpose of this book is to create a deeper awareness of domestic abuse and violence against women and children as part of an effort to reduce rates of ‘national violence and militarism’ – and terror,” writes Esman. “That violence exists not only in the desert sands of Islamic State territory and in the mountain villages of Afghanistan but also in American school shootings of Boston, at Christmas parties in San Bernardino, at military recruitment centers in Tennessee, in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, on the sidewalks of New York City; and at a café in Sydney, Australia, a conference in Copenhagen, a restaurant in Paris, on the London Metro, on the cobbled streets of Amsterdam, and far too many more.”
