This book provides a comprehensive compilation and discussion of research findings on female aggression from antropology, social psychology, animal research, case studies and representation in literature. This multidisciplinary approach addresses such questions as are females more aggressive than males?, is female aggressive behaviour perhaps qualitatively, not quantitatively, different than male aggressive behaviour'. The book also examines patterns of aggression, the role of hormones in aggression, cultural differences, and how human aggression differs from aggression within animal species.
