Is aggressiveness our fate or our responsibility? In this stimulating new book, a distinguished French neurobiologist grapples with this compelling question. Drawing on his thirty years research, Karli analyzes the many factors that may contribute to the appearance of aggressive behavior in animals and humans. The relationships between brain mechanisms and the initiation of aggressive behavior, as well as the various means that are available for controlling individual and collective acts of aggression, are discussed. Professor Karli's book will be of value not only to research workers in psychology and animal behavior but also to all thoughtful scientists interested in this vitally important aspect of human behavior.
