About the Author:

Barbara Krahé is Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Potsdam, Germany.

She is an active member of the International Society for Research on Aggression (ISRA).

Review:

The second edition of The Social Psychology of Aggression offers an illuminating scientific reflection on pressing societal problems. The book is well-balanced because basic research and applied research on social aggression are emphasized equally. It is revealing, fascinating and passionate and represents a significant and unparalleled contribution to the aggression literature. - Hans-Werner Bierhoff, Faculty of Psychology, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany

Krahé has done an excellent job of organizing and explaining current social psychological research on aggression. Her careful examination of factors that influence aggression in a variety of contexts provides a solid introduction to the field. - Jeff Bryson, Department of Psychology, San Diego State University, USA

This edition is a wonderful update to the excellent 1st edition. It accurately and clearly portrays the current state of knowledge about the social psychology of human aggression, and does so in an engaging way. Students will love it. - Craig A. Anderson, Department of Psychology, Iowa State University, USA

Barbara Krahé presents a thorough and engaging overview of the social psychological literature on human aggression... I felt compelled to stop at several points per chapter to take notes and ponder the ideas Dr. Krahé presents. - Kevin M. Swartout, The Bulletin of the International Society for Research in Aggression, Volume 35 (1), June 2013
