Sissela Bok (au). What’s the effect of long-term media violence on our national character? While almost everyone has a strong opinion about the profusion of violence -- in film, TV, video games, & on-line -- paralysis sets in when it comes to action. The issue is seen as a hopeless standoff between free speech & preserving public morality. Bok lays out the arguments & weighs the evidence on each side, & gives a historical overview of the debate: from Rome, to 19th-century attempts to ban all theater, to censorship of the Internet in China, & contrasting views of figures as diverse as Martin Scorsese, Bill Moyers, & Judge Bork. Gives specific & imaginative ways to resolve the dilemma.
