Summary: Children, Adolescents, and Media Violence provides a comprehensive review and critique of the literature related to media violence in all its forms during childhood and adolescence. Special attention is paid to evaluating the role of the development processes in media violence research and to stressing the importance of methodology in understanding that research. The developmental analysis taken by the author allows for the identification of age-related "holes ...show more" in the literature and helps students to become critical consumers of research. The book provides the most comprehensive overview available of the effects of media violence on children and adolescents.

Key Features:

  • Takes a developmental perspective and utilizes three themes throughout the text: critical assessment of research; the importance of development in evaluating research; and identifying the next step in the research process
  • Covers multiple forms of media violence (e.g., animated violence, sports violence, dramatic violence, gaming violence) to broaden the scope of discussion
  • Discusses and critiques the five major theories utilized to explain the impact of media violence on children and adolescents
  • Places media violence in the context of other risk factors for aggression (e.g., peers, parenting, personality)
  • Includes chapter-opening introductions (written engagingly) to draw in readers and to set the stage for the content to come
  • Extends the discussion beyond explicit media violence to address the potential benefits and harm associated with nonviolent media consumption
