The Psychology of Nonviolence and Aggression (Hardcover)

The Psychology of Nonviolence and Aggression By V. K. Kool Cover Image
Special Order


Kool draws on recent research to illustrate that whilst the control of violence is a reaction to aggression, nonviolence is, by contrast, an active behaviour. The book explores a wide survey of theories and examples, spanning ideas in cognition, motivation and behaviour that will provide students with an engaging entry point to the subject.
