Violence and Terror in the Mass Media: An Annotated Bibliography

Synopsis

"Originally a Unesco project, this annotate bibliography results from more than 4,600 requests to media scholars and researchers for research reports, publications, and other information relating to violence and terrorism. Although there is an international cast to the materials, most are from the U.S. Even though violence and terrorism permeate our myths and legends, there is increasing concern with their effect on viewers. This bibliography is particularly timely, with entries through spring 1987. The sections of the work (mass media content, mass media effects, pornography and the media, terrorism and the media) give a better idea of the work's scope than does the title." Choice "[T]he annotations are clearly written, succinctly descriptive of the original work's research with test groups, and evaluative of research results." Reference Books Bulletin
