About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Handbook of Violent Behavior and Aggression presents the current state of knowledge related to the study of violent behaviors and aggression. An important extension of the first Handbook published ten years ago, the second edition maintains a distinctly cross-disciplinary focus by representing the newest scholarship and insights from behavior genetics, cross-cultural comparative psychology/criminology, evolutionary psychology, criminal justice, criminology, human development, molecular genetics, neurosciences, psychology, prevention and intervention sciences, psychiatry, psychopharmacology, public health, and sociology. The Handbook is divided into introductory and overview chapters on the study of violent behavior and aggression, followed by chapters on biosocial bases, individual and interpersonal factors, contextual factors, and prevention and intervention work and policy implications. It is an essential resource for researchers, scholars, and graduate students across social and behavioral science disciplines interested in the etiology, intervention, and prevention of violent behavior and aggression.

    • Presents a distinctly cross-disciplinary approach to the study of violence and aggression
    • This second edition is brought fully up to date with the inclusion of new research on the etiology of violence and aggression, as well as new insights from intervention and prevention work
    • Gives increased attention to new developments in neurobiology relating to violence and aggression

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘Books and articles dealing with violence abound in the professional literature, but few can compare with this one when it comes to both depth and breadth. Each chapter is thorough and grounded in a strong research foundation - both ‘classic' and ‘contemporary'. Any scholar or professional taking on the complex questions ‘who is violent?', ‘why are they violent?', “what can be done about it?' will find invaluable intellectual resources here.' James Garbarino, Loyola University, Chicago, author of Listening to Killers

    ‘Vazsonyi, Flannery, and DeLisi have assembled many of the leading authorities on a scientific approach to understanding violence and aggression into a singularly authoritative volume. It is distinguished by the multidisciplinary viewpoints represented as well as the broad set of perspectives, sectors of influence, and approaches included. A timely assessment of our current knowledge the compendium clearly draws theoretical, practical, and policy-related implications. It should guide work in the field for the coming decade.' Patrick H. Tolan, University of Virginia

    ‘The second edition gets better and better! This authoritative new violence handbook bears the intellectual stamp of its three world-renowned editors. It is uniquely multidisciplinary. Chapters cover the full range: from the very best etiological research on self-regulation, neuroscience, genetics, and bio-social criminology, to the very best research on practice and policy. Each and every chapter is easy to read, and all pack a big knowledge punch. This new Handbook is a priceless resource for scientists, students, practitioners, and anyone really who needs to be fully informed about violence.' Terrie E. Moffitt, Nannerl O. Keohane University Professor, Duke University, North Carolina, Professor of Social Behaviour and Development, Institute of Psychiatry London and Associate Director, University of Otago, New Zealand
