Summary

A "devil's-advocate" approach to the topic of media violence and its effect on culture and society, counterposing essays by multiple contributors which argue the pros and cons of various aspects of the debate, including: the harm done to children by violent television programs and music lyrics, whether media violence causes violent behavior, and the varying ways in which society might respond to the issue.
