"This well-written study adds many fresh perspectives to a continuing social and public policy debate. . . . Highly recommended."
"Potter's The 11 Myths of Media Violence is a groundbreaking, innovative look at a problem that continues to produce controversy even though researchers have been studying it for more than half a century. Potter cogently describes and explains the theories and research that have attempted to illuminate this controversy. However, he goes well beyond all previous books on the topic by explaining the forces that undermine any attempts at public understanding or a resolution of the problem.
"The 11 Myths of Media Violence is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the issue media violence. Potter's thought-provoking challenges to arguments that media violence is harmless or benign are clearly articulated, empirically sound, and undeniably essential in our violence-saturated culture. This book is certain to be a primary reference for students, scholars, and policy makers dealing with how best to address the psychological, social, and legal implications of violence in the media."
"It is a wonderful summary of the key issues in this hotly debated area. . . This book is a "must read" for anyone involved in the media violence debate."
"The 11 Myths of Media Violence is a must read for everyone who has ever sat in front of a television. Potter indicts our culture thirsty for a quick fix and simple black and white answers. He reminds us we live in a wonderful world of mystery, complexity and untold shades of gray. I must order more copies of this book for the many friends and cohorts with whom I attempt to discuss the harms of media violence."
