Are humans inherently violent?

The first human civilizations appeared between 3,000 and 4,000 years ago; since then, humans as a species have been entirely at peace for about 268 years. And up to 1 billion people may have perished as a direct result of the war, according to “What Every Person Should Know About War” (Free Press, 2003)

Violence is clearly not a modern phenomenon, but is it an integral part of being human? Have we evolved to be aggressive?
