The goal of this document collection is to consider how a worried generation of parents, experts, and government officials thought about the relationship between violence in the media and juvenile delinquency. The primary source documents will show why a great many Americans believed that culture caused crime, as well as the arguments against this assumption. Students are guided through their analysis of the primary sources with an author-provided learning objective, central question, and historical context.
