Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive handbook that contains 28 chapters organized into five sections. Part I focuses on theoretical perspectives and includes biological, physiological, ethological, sociological, social psychological, psychoanalytic, and humanistic points of view. Part II considers such general issues as epidemiology, legal and ethical questions, and the problems of aggression control in both adult and child psychiatric settings. Parts III and IV make up the bulk of the volume and review how, and if, aggression is manifested in the various diagnostic groups of adult, juvenile, and adolescent patients. Finally, in Part V, family violence with adults, family violence with children, and serial murder are considered. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
