Description - Moving Experiences by David Gauntlett

"David Gauntlett's analysis of media effects research is still timely, impressively thorough, and yet a pleasure to read. Published in this edition with excellent new material about his creative new alternatives to traditional 'effects' studies, this book is a must-have package for media students." -Annette Hill, Professor of Media Studies, University of Westminster Television, movies, and the media have been blamed for every kind of social problem and antisocial act, and countless studies have set out to quantify their harmful effects. In Moving Experiences, David Gauntlett argues that much of this blame is misplaced and that the methodology used to justify it is deeply flawed. Screen media are a central part of modern social life and an important influence upon how we see the world, but their "effects" will necessarily be complex and indirect. And many of the ill effects attributed to screen media are really the result of more serious social problems.
