Handbook of Children and the Media Edited by Dorothy G. Singer and Jerome L. Singer
From the publisher
|From Internet censorship to television V-chips, the effects of the media on children is one of the most widely debated issues in our society. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of renowned scholars the Handbook of Children and the Media is the first and only all-inclusive analysis of the field. In addition to covering the "traditional" media of television, film, and advertising, this handbook examines the effects of "new media," such as the Internet and video games. Providing the groundwork for informed policy-making and programming, this reference examines the current state of research and suggests the course for the next generation of researchers. Students, educators, and policy makers alike will appreciate this valuable and comprehensive resource.
