"The Encyclopedia of Media Violence will be a tremendous resource to support specialized initial research for students new to the topic and courses with aligned content in communication studies, psychology, child development, sociology and other related fields. The strength of this book is in its readable articles that summarize scientific studies and that are written by experts in their fields covering everything from influence on advertising to  policies on use of weapons in violent media content to goals and effects of media rating systems.”
