Summary
In this book, distinguished scholars from social psychology, sociology, and criminology join to present an interdisciplinary perspective to the study of aggression and violence. The common denominator that unites the authors' diverse methodologies and theoretical approaches is the social interactionist perspective. The social interaction preceding aggressive behavior is emphasized, with aggression viewed as instrumental behavior that is the result of rational choice by the actor. /// In the face of perceived injustice or conflict, actors use aggression and often violence to exert social influence, express grievances, and maintain and enhance desired identities. By examining the social contexts in which aggression occurs, the authors explore why aggression occurs, what it means, and how alternative means of social control can be encouraged. /// [The book's] use of the social interactionist perspective establishes and paves the way for communication across the various disciplines on this controversial and continually challenging topic.
