Estell, David B.; Cairns, Robert B.; Farmer, Thomas W.; Cairns, Beverley D.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v48 n1 p52-76 Jan 2002
A 2-year study of 92 inner-city African American first-graders examined aggressive behavior patterns in relation to individual behavioral profiles, peer affiliations, and classroom social positions. Analysis uncovered considerable heterogeneity in relationships among overt aggression, popularity, and social network centrality. Two subsets of aggressive students were identified: one marked by high social prominence, the other by low levels of popularity. (TJQ)
