Mythologies of Violence in Postmodern Media / Edition 1by Barry Keith Grant, Wayne State University Press
Pub. Date: 09/28/1999
Publisher: Wayne State University Press
Violence has been a topic of continued concern within American culture and society. Although there have been numerous sociological and historical studies of violence and its origins, there is relatively little systematic analysis of violence within media representation, even as this issue becomes preeminent within public discourse. This anthology examines a number of issues related to violence within the media landscape, using various methodologies to suggest the implications of the increasing obsession with violence for postmodern civilization.
