School shootings have raised considerable interest among scholars as a global (media) cultural phenomenon and have increased specifically in the 1990s developing into a seeming cultural epidemic. This book contributes to the current academic discussion on school shootings by analyzing this phenomenon in a broader context of mediatization in contemporary social and cultural life. Mediatized logic has the power to influence us as individuals communicating about the shootings and experiencing the shootings as victimizers, victims, witnesses or bystanders. In three sections, this book explores shootings from different, yet interconnected, perspectives: (1) a theoretical focus on media and school shootings within various sociological and cultural dimensions, specifically how contemporary media transform school shootings into mediatized violence; (2) a focus on the practices of mediatization, with emphasis on mediated coverage of school shootings and its political, cultural, social and ethical implications; and (3) an examination of the audiences, victims and witnesses of school shootings as well as organizations which try to manage these public crimes of significant media interest.

About the Author:

Glenn W. Muschert - University of Miami, USA
Johanna Sumiala - University of Helsinki, Finland

Review:

Muschert (Miami U., US) and Sumiala (U. of Helsinki, Finland) present 14 chapters that explore the media/communication dynamics of school shootings. Topics discussed include school shootings and confrontational media rhetoric; a socialization theory perspective on media dynamics in school shootings; the prevalence and causes of misguided speculation about the role of violent video games in mass school shootings; media consumption in German school shooters; the comparative study of journalist roles, responsibilities, and emotional reactions to school shooting in the US and Finland; and YouTube responses to the Virginia Tech shooting. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR

Overall, the 14 chapters of this volume highlight the importance of media for framing the school-related violence issues and provide the readers with a comprehensive analysis of the mediatization of violence, and in particular to the media coverage of school shootings in the context of globalization. This volume is useful for students, scholars, teachers and anyone interested in understanding mediatized violence as a global phenomenon. The book fills a gap in violence studies by providing a new critical analysis of school shootings from different perspectives: theoretical perspective, media perspective and audiences' perspective. --Biana Mitu, Assistant Lecturer, University of Bucharest. Reviewed in the International Journal of Communication and Health, Vol. 2, 2013
