From our obsession with serial killers to violence in pop culture, we seem inescapably drawn to the stories of monstrous acts and the people who commit them. But evil, Julia Shaw argues, is all relative; what one culture may consider normal, like sex before marriage, eating meat, or being a banker, others find abhorrent.
