Summary
"The literature on aggression is scattered, and researchers in one area may be unaware of what has been happening elsewhere. This isolation prevents researchers from sharing promising methods of investigation, and it tends to make theoretical formulations too narrow. It is hoped that this book will meet the need for communication; the aim is to accomplish this in three ways. First, there is a systematic presentation of what is known about aggression, thereby revealing gaps in knowledge. Second, theoretical formulations are compared, and their assumptions and implications are examined. Third, there is a delineation of the problems of investigating aggression in the laboratory and the field, as well as a presentation of methods of solving these problems. The original goal was comprehensive coverage, but the amount of material proved to be too great for a single volume, especially in the areas of projective techniques, psychopathology, psychosomatics, prejudice, and development. Therefore the review has been selective, especially in the areas just noted. There is an emphasis on previously unpublished material (doctoral dissertations, papers presented at meetings) because of the relative unavailability of such material. The book is divided into three parts, although the division is at best a rough one. Part 1 deals with aggression as it is studied in the laboratory, with an emphasis on discrete aggressive responses and reactions to hostile stimuli. Part 2 is concerned with aggressiveness, i.e., aggression as an enduring response tendency; this section deals with methods of measuring aggressiveness, theories of aggressiveness, and aggressiveness and hostility in psychopathology. Part 3 concerns developmental and social aspects of aggression, with the social aspects limited to prejudice"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
