School shootings have raised considerable interest among scholars as a global (media) cultural phenomenon and have increased specifically in the 1990s developing into a seeming cultural epidemic. This book contributes to the current academic discussion on school shootings by analysing this phenomenon in a broader context of mediatization in contemporary social and cultural life. Mediatized logic has the power to influence us as individuals communicating about the shootings and experiencing the shootings as victimizers, victims, witnesses or bystanders. In three sections, this book explores shootings from different, yet interconnected, perspectives: (1) a theoretical focus on media and school shootings within various sociological and cultural dimensions, specifically how contemporary media transform school shootings into mediatized violence; (2) a focus on the practices of mediatization, with emphasis on mediated coverage of school shootings and its political, cultural, social and ethical implications; and (3) an examination of the audiences, victims and witnesses of school shootings as well as organizations which try to manage these public crimes of significant media interest.
Edward turned to follow the others as a cannon exploded. The powder charge was too great. Men fell to the deck screaming, but Edward could not hear them, for the blast had been deafening!
It is 1812 and Edward MacNeil's task is simple: escort Kate and Anne Kimmerling home to America, then travel to his uncle's cabin to wait out the war. But a vicious storm on Lake Erie leaves Edward and the girls shipwrecked on an island and caught in the midst of the conflict. Half British, half Oneida, Edward's loyalties are already divided, but his growing affection for an American makes his path even more unclear. As Edward finds his way, he comes to learn that courage, friendship, and love know no bounds.
