Description: It is a widely-held belief that because we understand that mass media stories are fantasies, they cannot affect our realities. This book argues against that premise by presenting research and theory in social psychology from a number of relevant areas that demonstrates the power of media to alter our realities. The areas covered include media violence, gender and racial stereotyping, social identity, sexualization, health, consumerism, beauty, domestic violence, and politics. The book also addresses why we resist believing that media affect us and what we can do to move from the passenger's seat to the drivers seat as media consumers.
