From the Publisher:

When anger is out of control, it often finds expression in violence and crime. Turned inward, it leads to depression. The problems fueled by these extremes of mood and emotion are of compelling importance both to individuals and to society as a whole, where depression and crime appear to be reaching epidemic proportions. Seeing Red and Feeling Blue is a comprehensive scientific examination of the related phenomena of anger, stress, depression, and crime; it reveals how we can use the latest insights into the workings of the brain and its chemistry, along with other approaches, to lighten the burden of mood disorders and anti–social behavior. Susan Aldridge graduated from Cambridge University with a BA in Natural Sciences and London University with a PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry. She is an educator, medical researcher, science writer, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

From the Inside Flap:

The first popular book to present a comprehensive and scientific survey of depression, crime and stress, and of how to control destructive emotions.

If ?bad? behaviour is driven by disordered brain chemistry, then how and why does this chemical disorder happen? Is it something in our genes, or do environmental and social factors play a part? If chemistry is key, what new solutions to the problems of stress, depression and crime might be generated by playing around with people?s brain chemistry and genes? And what are the ethical and psychological implications of these potential solutions? This fascinating and informative book explores and seeks to answer these questions.
