A Violent World is a valuable contribution to critical media studies and more specifically to a better understanding of comparative international media. -- Courtney C. Radsch, American University * International Journal of Communication *
A Violent World is a unique book that provides an original and comprehensive analysis connecting global political and economic developments and ideologies with TV reports about violence. This is a bold and excellent analysis that uses macrolevel perspective to explain the contents of the mainstream news. Thus, this book provides a meaningful contribution not only to the studies of communication, but also to political science, economics, political psychology, and studies of culture. -- Daniel Bar-Tal, past president, the International Society of Political Psychology
