About this product
- DescriptionThis volume brings together contributions from a group of international scholars concerned with cross-cultural perspectives on youth and violence. The goal of the book is to present a set of themes (such as gang violence, xephobia and school bullying) that are often treated only within a single national setting or from the perspective of a single academic discipline. The result is a book that attempts to communicate across disciplinary and national boundaries about common themes relating to youth as perpetrators and as targets of aggression and violence. The chapters range from theoretical examinations of violence-related attitudes among American youth to bullying in German and Japanese schools, to problems of urban youth in Brazil, to American gang research and its applicability to other urban cultures. The authors are from a variety of disciplines, including sociology, political science, psychology, education and criminal justice.
