As with last year's Hiroshima issue,1 most of the articles in this issue of THE JOURNAL describe the problems of violence and human rights violations. Problem descriptions raise important questions but provide few answers. Few manuscripts submitted for this issue tested hypotheses about specific causes of violent behavior or methods of violence prevention. For next year's issue, we again appeal to researchers of all disciplines who have an interest in the study of violence and emphasize our interest in papers that seek answers to critical problems in the prevention, deterrence, and control of violent behavior.
