Summary
Public hunger for violent entertainment has always existed with each invention of new media, from the printing press to the Internet. This book examines the current and historical debates over one of the most widely discussed yet little understood issues of our time: the social and cultural effects of violence in film, television, and video games. The book explains the need for media violence, and why, despite decades of activism against them, violent media outlets continue to grow and develop at a rapid pace. Examples are drawn from a range of media, including disaster and horror movies, science fiction, film tie-in toys, crime shows, MTV, news, sports, children's television programming, books, and video games. It also investigates the forces encouraging social anxieties, why violence in media exists at all, and how society can deal with it
