The Great Leveler by Walter Scheidel,

The Great Leveler

 

Read the book “The Great Leveler” by Walter Scheidel, “Collision of Wills” by Roger Gould, and “Violence” by Randall Collins. All these three books are talking about violence and inequalities. Use the Parkland school shooting as a setting, imagine an argument between Roger Gould, Walter Scheidel, and Randall Collins, each critiquing the others’ works by using their theories. For example, if Collins is right, what should we expect to see on school playgrounds? And do we actually see that? Papers will be evaluated based on how well and accurately they apply each author’s arguments to critique other authors, and how well they apply these ideas to new contexts. Avoid summary of the books. Do not use outside sources other than these three books.
