Product Overview

"David Gauntlett''s analysis of media effects research is stilltimely, impressively thorough, and yet a pleasure to read. Published in this editionwith excellent new material about his creative new alternatives to traditional''effects'' studies, this book is a must-have package for media students." --Annette Hill, Professor of Media Studies, University ofWestminster

Television, movies, and the media have been blamed forevery kind of social problem and antisocial act, and countless studies have set outto quantify their harmful effects. In Moving Experiences, David Gauntlett arguesthat much of this blame is misplaced and that the methodology used to justify it isdeeply flawed. Screen media are a central part of modern social life and animportant influence upon how we see the world, but their "effects" willnecessarily be complex and indirect. And many of the ill effects attributed toscreen media are really the result of more serious social problems.
