Publisher summary: Understanding aggressive behavior in children requires the integration of data from a broad variety of fields. But all too often, researchers have proceeded in isolation from one another. In this groundbreaking volume, Craig F. Ferris and Thomas Grisso bring together experts from a variety of disciplines--neuroscience, behavioral science, medicine, psychology, sociology, and ethics--to offer a broad-based look at a topic with far-reaching consequences, not only for childhood but also for society at large.
