Childhood Aggression and Violence
Violence, especially that committed upon, by, and within the young, has become a primary issue in American culture over the past decade. The 1960s, with their political manifestations of violence, including the assassinations of three important political leaders and the maiming of a fourth, civil demonstrations in the name of racial and social equality, and massive protests against governmental policies of conscription and foreign military intervention, provided the nation with a focus on its native traditions of violence and social upheaval which the superficial quietude of the 1950s had obscured.
