About this title

Synopsis:

Many parents, lawmakers, and researchers believe that violent movies, television programs, music, and video games contribute to the high rates of violence in American society. Authors debate the issue in the following chapters: How Serious Is the Problem of Violence in the Media? Does Violence in the Media Make Children and Teenagers More Violent? Should Children's Access to Violent Media Be Restricted? How Should the Problem of Media Violence Be Addressed?

Review:

"This anthology includes essays that initially appeared in periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents, and public and private organizational publications...A balanced presentation for highly controversial views, the selections differ in style and polish; some are carefully reasoned, and others are emotionally charged. Three major sections explore the dimensions of the problem, its causes, and possible remedies. Pulling no punches, this title covers its subjects well. Useful for research, for reports, and for debates."
-- School Library Journal (November 2001) (School Library Journal 20011101)

"I have almost every series Greenhaven Press has published and love them all..These titles will be a gret resource for current events, history, and speech classes and debate teams. Highly Recommended."
--Library Media Connection (August/September 2004) (Library Media Connection 20040901)

"This wide-ranging entry in the Current Controversies series gives readers information for reports as well as for making personal choices. The writing is more intellectual than impassioned, and supporting evidence usually comes from respected sources that young readers will likely recognize and trust. Rich materials for many curricular disciplines."
-- Booklist (May 2002) (Booklist 20020501)
