Understanding Violence By Scientific American Editors (Editor) Cover Image


Teens are likely familiar with headlines about mass shootings and other hate crimes flashing across their smartphones. This may cause them to search for answers about what drives people to commit such brutal acts of violence. With sensitive, explanatory text, this title explores some of the biological and psychological factors that can drive hate crimes and other aggressive actions. These causes can include intimacy, bias, genetics, and some psychological conditions that can be successfully treated if properly understood.
