The purpose of the current study was to delineate the relationship between Global Attachment History, Attachment Style and Global Battering Behavior in a sample of African American male college students, specifically to examine the interplay between Attachment Style and Global Attachment History. The researcher hypothesized correlations between GAH and GBB and AS and GBB. The researcher's hypothesis regarding the role of Attachment Style in the development of Global Battering Behavior was not supported as Global Attachment History was found to be the stronger predictor. And two, not one of the four dimensions of Global Attachment History (Peer Affectional Support and Parental Discipline) were found to significantly moderate Attachment Style. This last finding was the most remarkable aspect of the current inquiry.
