About the Book
Violence translates into any language and sells well in a global market: profit is almost always the overriding motive.
From the Publisher

Increasingly, they are being replaced by media conglomerates with very little to tell but a great deal to sell. This book is the "first broad, comprehensive, critical history and analysis of the issue of media violence; it is both timely and urgent.
