The horror of mass shootings leads, inevitably, to renewed debate over the causes of such violenceparticularly in the context of youth. Studies on the effects of violent media on young people have had mixed results. Through objective discussion, numerous direct quotes, and full-color illustrations this title examines: What Are the Origins of the Media Violence Debate? Does Violent Media Cause Violent Behavior? Are Violent Video Games Harming Youth? What Is the Impact of Sexual Violence in the Media? How Should the Problem of Media Violence Be Addressed?
