Should violence in the media be limited by law? Many experts would say yes, arguing that violence on the screen and over the airwaves begets violence in the streets and in our homes. Others think government interference with the media's freedom of expression is a worse problem than the one it's supposed to correct. Who is right? This volume offers no easy answers. Instead, it supplies a balanced historical perspective, analysis of research data on both sides of the question, and careful consideration of opposing arguments. Its goal is to provide students, teachers, researchers, and general readers with the background needed to understand this complex issue. Contents include a thoughtful, thorough introduction; a chronology of major events in the development of the controversy; biographical sketches of the central figures in the debate; analysis of resolutions, studies, laws, and other documents; a directory of organizations; annotated lists of print and nonprint resources; a glossary; and an index. Comprehensive and easy to use, this volume not only provides a wealth of useful information but also points readers toward pathways for further investigation.
