I'm reading this book right now.
One of my first questions: What is the definition of "violence."
It seems impossible to approach any such analysis of a topic like this without making that definition clear. And it's not so obvious what the definition should be, but I have some ideas.
In any case, without such a definition, I'm afraid Pinker's book is reduced to an anti-intellectual propaganda piece. Do you know if he has such a definition? I haven't seen one.
