Critique: "A comprehensive overview of media mayhem in a variety of forms, editor Eastin's compilation presents informative studies of theory, empirical data, and opinion on a contemporary public issue....This interesting and well-written reference is recommended for academic libraries, especially those supporting media or mass-communication programs." (Mary Ellen Snodgrass Booklist 2014-05-15)

"Violence in the media, a perennial research topic among undergraduate students, takes center stage in this one-volume encyclopedia. ... Contributors do an excellent job of treating a highly multidisciplinary topic, with entries culled from various disciplines, including communications, sociology, psychology, and media studies. Although this encyclopedia provides a solid foundation from which to explore emerging media, its focus is on violence in traditional media, such as music, television, and video games, in the US. Librarians will appreciate entries on such popular topics as cyber bullying, violent content in video games, and media violence-related legislation. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates." (C. Springfield CHOICE 2014-10-01)

"The Encyclopedia of Media Violence will be a tremendous resource to support specialized initial research for students new to the topic and courses with aligned content in communication studies, psychology, child development, sociology and other related fields. The strength of this book is in its readable articles that summarize scientific studies and that are written by experts in their fields covering everything from influence on advertising to  policies on use of weapons in violent media content to goals and effects of media rating systems.?
