Love's whipping boy : violence and sentimentality in the American imagination

Author: Elizabeth Barnes
Publisher: Chapel Hill : University of North Carolina Press, 2011.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
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.
