Where does courage exist? This study looks outside of the contexts of fear, violence, and endurance to examine the nature and expression of courage. To reveal the ideas and practices of bold behavior, the book tracks courage across cultural and historical divides to less spectacular, deeper expressions of power in boldness. Courage happens outside of heroics, in sometimes unexpected parts of public and private life. When courage is stripped of its culturally determined virtue, it is seen as an expression of human—and animal—spirit: explosive and morally ambivalent.

This book looks for courage outside of the extremes of violence, endurance and fear, tracking it across cultural and historical divides to its less spectacular and deeper forms. It follows courage across the age-divide to children and across the species- divide to animals.
