Handbook of Children, Culture, and Violence, Hardback Book

Handbook of Children, Culture, and Violence Hardback


This Handbook provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary examination of childhood violence for students, scholars, and policymakers.

A great many books have been published on children and violence, but the majority approach the topic from a single disciplinary perspective and most often concentrate on children as victims of violence.

In contrast, this book incorporates perspectives from across disciplinary bounds - psychology and human development, commnication, family law and public policy, criminology, human services - and examines children as consumers and perpetrators of violence, as well as victims, for the broadest possible view on the impact of a culture of violence in children's lives.
