Originally a Unesco project, this annotate bibliography results from more than 4,600 requests to media scholars and researchers for research reports, publications, and other information relating to violence and terrorism. Although there is an international cast to the materials, most are from the U.S. Even though violence and terrorism permeate our myths and legends, there is increasing concern with their effect on viewers. This bibliography is particularly timely, with entries through spring 1987. The sections of the work (mass media content, mass media effects, pornography and the media, terrorism and the media) give a better idea of the work's scope than does the title. Choice [T]he annotations are clearly written, succinctly descriptive of the original work's research with test groups, and evaluative of research results. Reference Books Bulletin This bibliography focuses on research and scholarly works relating to violence and terror. Consisting primarily of articles published in scholarly journals and books, this comprehensive work examines major topics such as violence and mass media content, violence and mass media effects, terrorism and the mass media, and pornography. Also included are articles from popular journals, reports published by the United States and other governments, conference papers, and dissertations. Each entry consists of the bibliographic citation and a short abstract; many of the sources include studies from other countries where relevant research has been conducted. The compilers' introduction provides a clear definition of violence and terrorism as they are dealt with in this volume and offers an interesting overview of various aspects of the subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This report is based on replies to over 4600 requests addressed to the international academic community for research reports, papers, publications, and other information on the subject of violence and terror in the mass media, supplemented by a search of libraries and data archives. In section 1, the material on policy costs and benefits is reviewed. The first chapter looks at codes, laws, and guidelines. The next looks at news coverage of violence and terror in the media, from both national and comparative perspectives. Section 2 looks at the analyses that have been done of violent media content. It covers violence in general, violence in the form of crime and civil disorders, and violence as it appears in television entertainment, rock music/music videos, coverage of terrorism, hostage crises, and national/cross-national studies. Section 3 looks at the evidence on the consequences of media violence, and the policy responses proposed to deal with them. It groups the material in the following categories: exposure and preference, perception, aggression, links to direct action, public projects and cultural indicators; terrorism; and concluding comments."-Communication Abstracts

"This annotated bibliography describes research published in scholarly journals and books, popular journals, government reports, conference papers and dissertations that relates to violence and terror in four major areas: violence and mass media content, violence and mass-media effects, terrorism and the mass media, and pornography. Throughout, the editors make no attempt to evaluate the research reported. Most of the studies annotated were compiled in the United States and published through the spring of 1987. Each entry consists of the bibliographic citation and a brief descriptive abstract. Of the 784 entries presented, 673 focus on media content and effects. Author and subject indexes make this a research friendly' volume."-Et Cetera
"The portrayal of violence and terrorist actions by the mass media as both news and entertainment not only reflects world events but influences them and makes strong impressions on individual personalities and societal consciousness as well. The thirteenth in Greenwood's series of reference works in sociology, this bibliography grew out of a UNESCO international survey of published sources on the subject and a subsequent search of the literature through spring 1987. . . One major strength of the bibliography is that the annotations are clearly written, succinctly descriptive of the original work's research with test groups, and evaluative of research results. An author index gives the entry numbers for both primary and joint authors, and the subject index has a mix of entries both specific (Red Brigades, Pope John Paul, Iran, Achille Lauro) and general (overviews, longitudinal studies, perceptions, crime, cartoons, and newspapers)."-Reference Books Bulletin
