Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists Vol/Iss. 31 (29) Published In Pages: 10-20
By Prescott, James W.


The author hypothesizes that physical violence is strongly related to the deprivation of physical pleasure. The author tests this hypothesis by looking at the relationship between physical affection towards infants, as well as attitudes towards premarital sex, and several variables related to violence. Results support the hypothesis.
