Human Aggression

Synopsis
Depicts the major scientific principles and findings on human aggression through field situations and laboratory studies. The activities of a youth gang demonstrate aggression in terms of dominance and territoriality, frustration and displacement. Looks at how aggression is learned, both by lower- and upper-class children. Highlights Bard’s work on the psychological training of police, Bandura’s and Walters’ Bobo doll experiment, Milgram’s work with group influences on aggression, Sykes and Matza on the ligitimisation of aggression in delinquent groups, and a statement by former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark on aggression among the disadvantaged.
