Aggressive behavior is analyzed from an interactionist perspective. Rather than focusing only on in-the-person traits of aggressors, interactionism seeks to include such ecological variables as victims, fellow group members and the immediate and larger physical location. Physical and social components of aggressive events are examined at the micro (home/the victim), meso (neighborhood/the group) and macro (region/the mob) levels. Annotation c.
