Description - Deciphering Violence by Karen A. Cerulo
Drawing on media that includes television, newspaper, fiction, film, painting and photography, as well as interviews and focus groups, Karen Cerulo explores the ways in which individuals think about, depict and evaluate violence. Moving beyond typical studies that focus on violent story content, this book decodes the role of story structure itself and how the sequencing of facts can systematically influence our moral judgements of violent acts.
