Overview

Children, Adolescents, and the Media overviews what is known about the impact of mass media on youth in the 21st century. The goal is to provide a comprehensive, research-oriented treatment of how children and adolescents interact with the media. Each chapter reviews the latest findings as well as seminal studies that have helped frame the issues in such areas as advertising, violence, video games, sexuality, drugs, body image and eating disorders, music, and the Internet. The authors take an approach grounded in the media effects tradition, targeting areas that are most controversial and at the heart of debates about mass media and public health and equipping students to approach the media as critical consumers.
