Contents: Setting the stage: why this book is needed --
A short history of the concept of effects: the people who raised concerns about the media's putative effect on society --
The epistemology of media effects: the way different scholars view the world in which they live often predicts the initial approach they take to doing research --

The world according to causationists: what the world would be like if the causationists were right --
The biggest cultural variable of all: the Child Careful! and watch out for the children --
The role of psychopathology in the media violence/aggression equation: a return to psychological and cultural conditionals as boundaries for assessing media effects --
The attempt to make an ideology a science: when well-meaning people try to "science-ize" an ideology, confusion and foggy thinking reign --
To legislate or not to legislate against media violence: what policy makers need to know --
