The second edition of this textbook provides a thoroughly revised, updated and expanded overview of social psychological research on aggression. The first part of the book covers the definition and measurement of aggression, presents major theories, and also examines the development of aggression, including personality and gender differences. This part also covers the role of situational factors in eliciting aggression, and the impact of using violent media. The second part of the book is devoted to specific forms and manifestations of aggression. It includes chapters on aggression in everyday life (such as bullying at school and in the workplace, aggressive driving, and aggression in the context of sports events), domestic violence against children, intimate partners, and elders, and sexual aggression. There are two new chapters in this edition which address intergroup aggression and terrorism. The concluding chapter explores strategies at individual and societal level for reducing and preventing aggression. The book will be essential reading for students and researchers in psychology and related disciplines. It will also be of interest to practitioners working with aggressive individuals and groups and to policy-makers dealing with aggression as a social problem.
