Description - The Myth of Media Violence by David Trend

The Myth of Media Violence: A Critical Introduction assesses the current and historical debates over violence in film, television, and video games; extends the conversation beyond simple condemnation or support; and addresses a diverse range of issues and influences. * Looks at the chronology of contemporary media violence, and explores reservations over communications medias throughout history. * Examines the forces behind the encouraged anxieties about media violence. * Uses examples drawn from a range of media, including disaster and horror movies, science fiction, film tie-in toys, crime shows, MTV, news, sports, and children's television programming, books and video games. * Includes a closing chapter about why media violence exists as it does in our culture, and what we can do about it.
