Overview

Cyber-bullying, sexting, and the effects that violent video games have on children are widely discussed and debated. With a renowned international group of researchers and scholars, the Second Edition of the Handbook of Children and the Media covers these topics, is updated with cutting-edge research, and includes comprehensive analysis of the field for students and scholars. This revision examines the social and cognitive effects of new media, such as Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Skype, i Pads, and cell phones, and how children are using this new technology. This book summarizes the latest research on children and the media and suggests directions for future research. This book also attempts to provide students with a deliberate examination of how children use, enjoy, learn from, and are advantaged or disadvantaged by regular exposure to television, new technologies, and other electronic media.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This sturdy hardcover by two well-known Yale psychologists could easily become the classic textbook on the effects of media on children. The impressive work is divided into three parts—The Popular Media as Educators and Socializers of Growing Children; Forging the Media Environment for the Future: The Media Industry and Its Technology; and Policy Issues and Advocacy. Respected academics or children's advocates contribute each of the thirty-nine chapters, writing in scholarly prose and often including charts, graphs, study results, and current statistics. The chapter subjects range from current hot topics such as gender roles on television, children and advertising, and the impact of video games and the Internet on children's socialization skills, to more esoteric issues, including television's role as an incidental language teacher and the history of children's advocacy groups. The editors provide a cogent introduction and afterword along with a brief summary of each chapter, an excellent index, and an alphabetical list of short contributor biographies. The scholarly nature of the articles and the fact that many read like excerpts from respected educational journals might render them less accessible to high school students than to college or graduate students in education, advertising, communications, or related fields. Nevertheless the chapters on the hot topics mentioned above might be useful to high school students studying similar subjects. The book's high price is sure to give smaller libraries pause, but the excellent scholarship, contemporary relevance, and attractive design make this text worth purchasing for large public library reference collections that serve highschool and university students. Index. Illus. Phtos. Charts. Source Notes. 2000, Sage Publications, 783p. PLB . Ages 16 to Adult. Reviewer: Leah J. Sparks SOURCE: VOYA, April 2001 (Vol. 24, No.1)

Concerns over the escalation of experience mediated through the electronic media generated this review of the research on their effects on child development and literacy. Experts scan issues in 39 chapters organized into sections on the popular media as educators and socializers, future directions of the media industry/technology, and policy issues and advocacy groups. Part 1 discusses how youngsters use these technologies and what needs they appear to gratify. Parts 2 and 3 focus on the broader social impact of media environments, including the online children's consumer culture and adults as models and monitors of healthy media habits. The Singers co-direct the Yale U. Family Television Research and Consultation Center. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
