Asking Questions about Violence in Popular Culture

Cover: Asking Questions about Violence in Popular Culture



From sports to movies, video games to the news, violence is everywhere in pop culture. Asking Questions about Violence in Pop Culture looks at how we decide what is deemed "too violent" to show the public, how those standards have changed over time, and what our increasing tolerance of violence says about our culture. Case studies prompt inquiry, further thinking, and close examination of specific issues. Additional text features and search tools, including a glossary and an index, help students locate information and learn new words.
