Description

Blood, Guns, and Testosterone: Action Films, Audiences, and a Thirst for Violence is a study of the modern action film as a symbolic art of masculinity and a study of this genre's fans who discuss the functions film violence fulfills in their lives. Far from causing real life violence, the book demonstrates that entertainment violence has important social, political, and psychological roles in modern society.
