Media violence and its effect on aggression : assessing the scientific evidence by Jonathan L Freedman( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work, Jonathan Freedman argues that the scientific evidence does not support the notion that exposure to TV and film violence causes aggression in children or adults. Based on his findings, far fewer than half of the scientific studies have found a causal connection between exposure to media violence and aggression or crime. In fact, Freedman believes that, taken to an extreme, the research could be interpreted as showing that there is no causal effect of media violence at all." "Media Violence and Its Effect on Aggression offers a provocative challenge to popular wisdom and various public statements by professional and scientific organizations. Freedman begins with a comprehensive review of all the research on the effect of violent movies and television on aggression and crime. Having shown the lack of scientific support for the prevailing belief that media violence is connected to violent behaviour, he then explains why something that seems so intuitive and even obvious might be incorrect, and provides plausible reasons why media violence might not have bad effects on children. He contrasts the supposed effects of TV violence on crime with the known effects of poverty and other social factors." "Freedman concludes by noting that although in recent years television and films have been as violent as ever and violent video games have become more and more popular, there has been a dramatic decrease in violent crime. He argues that it is thus unlikely that media violence causes an increase in aggression or crime and that both increases and decreases in violent crime are the result of major social forces."--Jacket
Deviancy; the psychology of being different by Jonathan L Freedman( Book )

23 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deviancy: The Psychology of Being Different discusses the effects of deviancy on behavior. The book describes the effect of deviancy per se, in no reference to any particular deviant characteristic. The authors explain the methods they used in this study, as well as some checks made on the study to insure accuracy. Deviants prefer to associate with others of their kind due to fear of rejection, and they tended not to reveal their deviancy. The authors also discuss how deviants and non-deviants react and treat each other, and the degree of aggression that will be shown to a member of either gro

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cambridge Companion to Henry James is intended to provide a critical introduction to James's work. Throughout the major critical shifts of the last fifty years - and despite suspicions of the traditional high literary culture that was James's milieu - as a writer he has retained a powerful hold on readers and critics alike. All essays are newly commissioned for this volume, written at a level free from technical jargon, and designed to promote accessibility to the study of James and his work."--Jacket

Commitment, information utility, and selective exposure( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal hypothesis was that selectivity of voluntary exposure to information would increase with greater commitment. One hundred thirtyeight undergraduates were tested in a simulated jury setting. Strength of commitment to an initial vote was varied. Five measures of exposure were taken: ratings and rankings of article titles, duration of exposure to a persuasive communication and recall and recognition of its content. The results provided no support for the hypothesis on any of the five indices. Rather, the major effect of commitment was to depress interest in further relevant information unselectively. This reduction of interest was revealed on each of the first four indices of exposure. The results were discussed in connection with previous tests of dissonance theory hypotheses concerning voluntary exposure to information. (Author)
