Summary
"This book utilizes theory and research from the developmental psychology of "normal" children and adolescents as well as material on "abnormal" forms of development such as disruptive behavior disorders and juvenile delinquency; situates youthful aggression and violence within the overall framework of children's moral development; integrates quantitative research with carefully considered qualitative research and case studies; discusses the genetic and biological underpinnings of youthful aggression as well as family and social factors related to antisocial behavior; emphasizes cognitive, motivational, and emotional processes involved in youth aggression and violence; provides in-depth coverage of juvenile killers and school violence: examines female aggression and violence in a variety of contexts; and critically examines a number of questions frequently discussed in conjunction with youth violence, such as media violence, firearm accessibility, and the relationship between self-esteem and aggression."--BOOK JACKET.ð
