Rivalry & Feud
Volume XI, Number 4 | fall 2018
While uniting rival clans into a nation in the third millennium bc, China’s Yellow Emperor is said to have established prohibitions against feuding by making a gruesome example of one rebellious leader—peeling the man’s skin off to use for target practice, stuffing his stomach to make a ball to kick around, and fermenting his flesh and bones into a bitter broth to drink.
Many need no other provocation to enmity than that they find themselves excelled.—Samuel Johnson, 1751
