Television and Social Behavior; Reports and Papers, Volume III. Television and Adolescent Aggressiveness.
Comstock, George A., Ed.; Rubenstein, Eli A., Ed.
The question which guided the studies in this third volume of technical reports to the Scientific Advisory Committee on Television and Social Behavior is whether aggressive social behavior by adolescents can be attributed in some degree to violent television programming. After an overview which sets the studies in a comparative context, the studies are reported. They include a followup longitudinal study by Lefkowitz, Eron, Walder, and Huesmann with two comments on cross-lagged correlation. Also included are a study dealing with family influences by Chaffee and McLeod, "Adolescent Television Use in the Family Context"; two studies by McLeod, Atkin, and Chaffee which are concerned with self-report and other-report measures of television use and aggression; and a study by Dominick and Greenberg, "Attitudes Toward Violence: The Interaction of Television Exposure, Family Attitudes, and Social Class." Other studies reported include Friedman and Johnson, "Mass Media Use and Aggression: A Pilot Study"; Johnson, Friedman, and Gross, "Four Masculine Styles in Television Programming: A Study of the Viewing Preferences of Adolescent Males"; Robinson and Bachman, "Television Viewing Habits and Aggression"; and McIntyre and Teevan, "Television Violence and Deviant Behavior."
