Lopez's thesis can be stated as: Just as unseen violence spreads destruction through the heartland of America, so does unseen violence spread destruction through America's hearts. His title indicates that he is justifying and explaining his actions to us.

  • apologia: a work written as an explanation or justification of one's motives, convictions, or acts (Random House Dictionary)
