    The second is a romantic, utopian view of violence. Cramer's book forges an alternative way of understanding the role of violence in the transition to capitalism and a global economy. Providing a far more practical assessment, Cramer boldly argues that violent conflict has led to radical and positive reshaping of social relationships and provoked favorable social change. Many were eager to see and be a part of additional activities that might result from the meeting, and all of their contributions enriched the process of open dialogue that may result in new research, programmatic, and advocacy collaborations beyond the traditional confines of the silo approach. But not doing so costs us five million lives a year. If biosocial understandings are forsaken when considering communicable diseases such as HIVfor example, prevention methods and treatment practices become inadequate and unsustainable for populations.

    Medical professionals still continue to operate under the downstream phenomenon, with a focus is on individual lifestyle factors rather than general socio-economic, cultural, and environmental conditions. The reliability of the data itself is also thoroughly questioned, considering the extreme difficulty of collecting accurate information, especially in times of war. Cover design by Van Nguyen.

Cramer is attempting to demonstrate that the hypocrisy and double standards of the West, combined with the oversimplified and unreliable theories and models put forth by scholars, have contributed to poor policy and poor understanding of the causes and consequences of violence. Many were eager to see and be a part of additional activities that might result from the meeting, and all of their contributions enriched the process of open dialogue that may result in new research, programmatic, and advocacy collaborations beyond the traditional confines of the silo approach. However, the challenge is obvious: many countries cannot afford to stop the harmful cycle of structural violence.
