In this extraordinarily comprehensive portrait of the present state of the psychobiology of aggression, you will find critical information on understanding and controlling this type of behavior. The authors, nationally and internationally distinguished researchers, present to the reader a critical overview of the principal areas of psychobiological research on aggression, which updates your current knowledge about the influence of biological variables on aggression. The contributors to The Psychobiology of Aggression also explore, as a secondary focus, the relevance of this topic to the field of criminal justice. Subdivided into three sections - theoretical models, measurement, and treatment - this monograph begins to pave the way for your full understanding of the dynamics and control of aggression.

Lipids, Health, and Behavior explores potentially critical connections between lipids and psychopathology (such as violence and schizophrenia) and the more complex interactions among lipids, behavior, and physical health. A unique contribution to this young field of study, Lipids, Health, and Behavior will help shape the direction of continued investigation. Additionally, this multidisciplinary volume addresses concerns pertaining to a number of disciplines - including neurology, psychology, and cardiology - as well as implications for public health officials involved in shaping policy for the future.
Marc Hillbrand received a degree at the Paris Nanterre University in 1976. At the University at Buffalo, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1979.

Marc Hillbrand's motivation to write is simply a desire to share scientific information with peers to unravel the mysteries of a number of psychological phenomena. Among these, aggression figures prominently. He has devoted most of his professional career to the scientific study of aggression. Of particular interest for him is the link between aggression against others, such as interpersonal violence, and aggression against self, such as suicide.
His writing has been influenced predominantly by his peers in the published literature. Earlier stylistic influences include Sigmund Freud and Ronald Laing.
Quotations: "My patients and my co-workers inspire me to write about aggres¬sion. I work in a maximum-security forensic hospital, where I confront daily the challenge of making sense of violence, and of treating it and preventing it."
Marc Hillbrand is a member of the American Psychological Association and New England Psychological Association.
Marc gets to work around seven o’clock in the morning, turns on his ten-year-old computer, answers electronic mail, and just starts writing. Writing is easy for him. He writes preferably in chunks of two-to-three hours. Trusted colleagues review and critique his work. His wife is his most valuable reviewer because of her extraordinary writing skills and analytical mind, and also because she does not have to worry about social propriety when providing criticism. His colleagues are more gentle and cautious when providing feedback. Most of his scientific papers require half-a-dozen drafts.
Marc Hillbrand married Victoria M. Lingswiler on June 25, 1988. The marriage produced two children.
