Description
What is the relationship between media representations of violence and violence in the real world? Video games, television, and film depict complex scenes of violence that millions watch each day. Does this translate into an acceptance of violence? Or, worse, a willingness to perpetuate violence? Are some story elements too problematic for young audiences? Are networks marketing violence to teens and young adults? This anthology interrogates relevant questions related to media violence from diverse perspectives. Critical essays and articles help readers to understand the debate beyond the talking points in the news. Includes discussion of the juvenile literature industry; violence in rap music; and media violence as a health risk to adolescents.
