Book Description

The problem remains: students in schools across the United States are not only bullying each other but are killing each other. This book provides a foundation for the study of school violence, beginning with an analysis of the shootings at Columbine and going on to discuss all forms of aggression in schools. The authors provide a history of school violence in America, theories to explain bullying, and teachers' perceptions of this violence-and suggest ways that teachers and other school personnel can predict, control, and prevent outbursts of violence. Also included are discussions on the effects of the media on school violence, as well as the criminal justice system's responses. This book is an excellent resource for courses in criminal justice, teacher education, and all youth workers and counselors in schools and the community. ... Read more

Book Description

In the two centuries from the ratification of the First Amendment in 1791 through the Gulf War in 1991, the American press lacked an adequate right to analyze and report on the nation's armed conflicts. When restrictions were challenged as violations of the Constitution, military regulations and federal laws were justified as necessary under the "higher law" of survival. Is there law more important than the Constitution which allows prerogative powers to be used in a time of war or national crisis? This groundbreaking and provocative study, examining law and history over these two hundred years, argues that press freedom cannot and should not be suspended during armed conflict. The military and the media must work together because neither has authority over the other. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb
I first read this book when it was entered into a media history book competition for which I was a judge, before Sept. 11 and Afghanistan and Iraq. I was extremely impressed then. More recently, I have assigned my media history students (undergraduate and graduate students) to read it, and this fall, I am requiring graduate students in media law to read it. I'm not using this book so much because I'm too lazy to find or read another one; it's really that good. Nearly every sentence forces one to think about democracy, law, journalism, the nature of government, the role of the military, and the information needs of average citizens. It's not only for professors and journalism, history or law students. One of the best books I've ever read--no kidding.

5-0 out of 5 stars History That Helps You Understand the Headlines
Although published before the current war on terrorism, this book's historical overview of the relationship between media and the American government during times of war is strikingly relevant to today's headlines. Military tribunals for civilians? Abe Lincoln tried that in the Civil War. Another intriguing element is the discussion of how suppression of the atomic bomb's development -- by both the government and the media -- led to not only an ill-informed public, but an ill-informed president and may have impacted the final actions of World War II.
Filled with solid scholarly research, this book is still accessible to the lay reader and offers fascinating insight into our country's history. From the Revolutionary War to the Gulf War, it covers who, among journalists and politicians, took what actions in time of war; why they thought they were justified; and what impact these actions had on political, legal and military developments. ...

Book Description

This is the first book to focus on media and conflict—primarily international conflict—from multidisciplinary, cross-national and cross-cultural perspectives. Twenty-two contributors from around the globe present original and thought provoking research on media and conflict in the United States, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, and Asia. The research presented enquires into the media’s roles in different types and levels of conflict: global, where states and non-state actors are involved, including the conflict over globalization and the World Trade Organization (WTO); international, where the protagonists are states, including for example the Arab-Israeli conflict and theTokdo conflict between Japan and Korea; and domestic including ethnic and environmental conflicts.

Media and Conflict includes works both on the traditional print and electronic media and on new media including the Internet. It explores the role media play in different phases of conflict determined by goal and structure including conflict management, conflict resolution, and conflict transformation.

This thought-provoking volume is essential reading for students, researchers, and practitioners in communication, international relations, management, and political science, who are interested in conflict and conflict resolution ... Read more

Book Description

Examining the various boundaries of American artistic tolerance, chapters address the societal and legal responses to rock and rap music. Artistic expression has historically clashed with mainstream views, resulting in apprehension acted upon internally and externally, especially when expression is aimed toward children or young adults. This work studies the mass media content and programming in network television, Rolling Stone magazine, and the New York Times reviews and spot news concerning rock and rap music. The National Endowment for the Arts, the FCC, and the music industry's internal responses to parents and adults are discussed as well. Inhibitions and censoring, it is argued, stem from adult concerns for a healthy functioning society and from anxiety about the impact of sexual explicitness and uncontrolled behavioral expression on adolescents. This work attempts to explain why societal intolerance has a pattern of limiting the lyrics and sounds of rock and rap music. ... Read more

Market/Audience:
Web Publishers - Internet Content Providers & anyone who publishes content to the Web, does business over the Web, and anyone who develops or maintains websites.

Product Summary:
Over the last two decades, the Internet has grown from a novel means of communication among research scientists into a tool of mass communication essential to the daily lives of millions of people and businesses. The Internet is now widely used to send and receive messages, to buy and sell goods and services, and to access and disseminate information.

Not surprisingly, many legal issues recently addressed by the courts and legislatures in the United States and around the world involve how traditional bodies of law-such as trademark, copyright, defamation, contracts, privacy, and taxation-apply in this new electronic medium. With the author's helpful analysis and insightful commentary, this book tracks the important legal developments-court cases and legislation-that are now impacting Internet publishing. It also addresses key issues that are likely to become increasingly significant to Internet users and abusers in the coming years.

This book will help you understand your legal rights and responsibilities. Moreover, if your livelihood depends on publishing content on the Web, or protecting those who do, the book provides real-life case-bycase examples of people who were rewarded for doing it right and people who have been busted for doing it wrong. You can learn from their lessons.

Key Features:
* · Case law and legislation explanations
* · Discussion of trademark, copyright, libel and privacy and how these law related to these issues applies to the Internet ... Read more

Book Description

Perhaps no drama catches the interest of the American public more than a spectacular trial. Even though the reporting of a crime may quickly diminish in news value, the trial lingers while drama builds. Although this has become seemingly more pronounced in recent years with the popularity of televised trials, public interest in criminal trials was just as high in 1735 when John Peter Zenger defended his right to free speech, or in 1893 when Lizzie Borden was tried for the murder of her father and stepmother. This book tells the stories of sixteen significant trials in American history and their media coverage, from the Zenger trial in 1735 to the O. J. Simpson trial in 1995. Each chapter relates the history of events leading up to the trial, the people involved, and how the crimes and subsequent trials were reported. ... Read more

Book Description

Cohen v. Cowles Media Company changed the course of First Amendment media law. After a quarter century of decisions interpreting the First Amendment to give media organizations preferential treatment, the Supreme Court ruled in 1991 that the Constitution did not give the press immunity from the laws ordinary citizens must obey. The American Bar Association quarterly Communications Lawyer (Spring 1998) calls Cohen a "media law hall of fame case." The author, who was the plaintiff's sole attorney in all phases of the case, provides detailed analysis of the complexities of constitutional litigation and the strategic and tactical considerations involved in formulating constitutional arguments in the Supreme Court and other courts. ...

Book Description

Most Americans consider a free press essential to democratic society—either as an independent watchdog against governmental abuse of power or as a wide-open marketplace of ideas. But few understand that far-reaching public policies have shaped the news citizens receive. In an age when mass communication ranges from independent cable channels to the Internet, it is essential to assess these policies and their effects if we want the media to continue fulfilling its role. Freeing the Presses offers a path-breaking inquiry into the theory and practice of freedom of the press at a critical time in the growing overlap between modern media and political discussion.

Six political communication scholars draw upon history, sociology, political science, legal philosophy, and journalism to investigate whether the freedoms and privileges given to the news media and to reporters actually produce the results we expect. Their discussion covers past, present, and future media performance and engages a wide range of provocative questions: What understanding did the founders of the Constitution have of the press? Does the legal protection given to the press actually produce more free-wheeling news? Just how independent are the news media from political and other power centers? Must we accept a scurrilous, "unlovable" press if we are to have such independence? How will freedom of the press be changed by the new heady mix of mass-, middle-, and micro-media, and of citizen news-producers? Answers to these questions receive added perspective in an introductory essay by Timothy E. Cook and commentaries by four First Amendment experts.

Abook that will be welcomed by scholars, students, and anyone who relies on the freedom of the press in practice, Freeing the Presses addresses the important question of how best to pursue a media system that fulfills the demands of a democratic polity. ... Read more

Book Description

Regulation of the media has traditionally been premised upon claims of "the public interest," a term that remains contested and ill-defined. In the context of ongoing trends of technological development, convergence, and corporate conglomeration, traditional "public service" values in British broadcasting are challenged by market values, and regualtors must, increasingly, justify their interventions. The commercialization and privatization of the communication industries poses a fundamental threat to democratic values. This book argues that regulators will only successfully protect such values if "citizenship" is recognized as the rationale and objective for the regulatory endeavour. Mike Feintuck fully considers the actual and potential utility of legal mechanisms in the design and implementation of regulatory institutions. ... Read more
