Just relaxing - with Violence

Saturday morning and it is still soaked here in Houston. Will spend the day just relaxing, for a change. Am eager to delve into a book I picked up some time ago, "City of Sacrifice" by David Carrasco. A fascinating, if very difficult, read because it confronts violence as central to religion and urban civilization. Although published in 2001, I think it is timely and relevant, giving an American-civiliation-rooted look at violence and its inter-connectivities to religion, ritual and urban life.
