Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a concise and up-to-date overview of research in the field of Aggression. It presents a balanced account of both theoretical and applied issues and explores strategies designed to control, reduce, and prevent aggression on both an individual and a societal level. <BR>The book follows the broad division of the two distinct branches of research in the area. First, it deals with the theoretical approaches that have been taken to conceptualize, explain, measure, and predict the occurrence of aggression as a particular form of social behavior. Issues discussed include individual differences in aggressive behavior, the role of situational factors such as alcohol in eliciting aggression and the impact of media violence on viewer's aggressive response tendencies. Second, it addresses the manifestations of aggression in different areas of life, and the concerns of applied psychologists and practitioners regarding the damaging effects of aggression on individuals, groups, and societies. Included are chapters on aggression in the public sphere, domestic violence, and sexual aggression. Topics such as bullying, gang violence, ethnic violence, and violence against children, spouses, and the elderly are also covered. <BR>The Social Psychology of Aggression will be of interest to students and researchers in social psychology, sociology, law, media studies, and social work. It will also be useful to practitioners and policy makers working in areas such as domestic violence, sexual aggression, childhood and adolescent aggression, bullying, and gang violence.
