   schema:reviewBody ""The Case for Television Violence makes the provocative argument that television violence has been misinterpreted. Rather than undermining the social order, television supports it by providing a safe outlet for aggressive impulses. Media scholar Jib Fowles challenges the conventional wisdom by demonstrating that the scientific literature does not say what many believe it says, calling attention to the viewing habits and behaviors of the reader and those the reader knows, explaining that the antiviolence critique is most profitably understood as the signature issue in the conflict between high and popular culture, and situating the arrival of televised violence within the historical context of the disallowance of traditionally sanctioned targets of aggression."--BOOK JACKET. "The Case for Television Violence will intrigue scholars and students of media studies, cultural studies, and mass communication."--Jacket." ;
