This revised edition includes new chapters on the development of aggression, biological bases of aggressive behavior, and aggression in natural settings; and extensive updates of the theory and research covered in the first edition.
A text that provides an overview of current knowledge about human aggression, written so that it can be understood by persons without advanced training in the behavioral sciences, and thus accessible to undergraduates with a wide range of backgrounds. This extensively revised and updated edition (1st ed., 1977) adds three new chapters on the development of aggressive behavior, biological bases of human aggressive behavior, and aggression in natural settings. Extensive references. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
