Handbook of Children, Culture, and Violence
Nancy E. Dowd, Dorothy G. Singer, Robin Fretwell Wilson
SAGE, 2006 - Psychology - 483 pages
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.
