Summary
Rather than theoretical or abstract, above all else, this monograph endeavors to serve as a practical guide, a handbook for helping us navigate a dark terrain. It neither presumes to examine the sources of evil nor suggest radical cures. These pages strive only to continue the process of naming the signs of individual evil that we might recognize these persons before they inflict even more damage. Scott Peck says it best. "If evil were easy to recognize, identify, and manage, there would be no need for this book." Of course, he was referring to his own pioneering treatise; given the realities of our day, the need remains as great as ever. --Provided by publisher
