Carol Parsons, E-mail to author, 24 October 2014. 3 American Anger Control and the Role of Popular Culture Peter N. Stearns Americans have a peculiar relationship with the emotion of anger. Many Americans, I’m tempted to say most, and certainly many foreigners believe that our society embraces too much anger.

Comparative studies – for example, between France and the United States – also emphasize our national distrust of anger, the American preference for avoiding even limited outbursts; the French in contrast enjoy anger somewhat more freely. Anger has a complex role in popular media, as well. There is a long popular cultural tradition, going back to the classic Western, of valuing heroes who keep careful control over their emotions, who respond firmly but rationally to any provocation. The United States also saw, amid the contemporary campaigns against anger, the birth of the emotion-less superhero, who fights through for justice with no passion at all.

But Americans 34 American Anger Control, the Role of Popular Culture 35 also like to see anger depicted. We cherish displays of anger in sports. And we like to see high emotion represented also in certain movie and television genres. This chapter aims to outline elements of the complex national approach to anger, first in terms of accepted standards, but then in terms of the media relationship to these standards – a relationship that can involve reinforcement but that can also involve deliberate presentation of symbolic alternatives.
