Overview

"A readable handbook that is certain to be an important resource for students, scholars, and researchers in a variety of disciplines. "

— CHOICE

From Internet censorship to levels of television exposure, the effects of mass media on children is one of the most widely debated issues in our society. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of renowned scholars from around the world, the Handbook of Children and the Media is the first and only all-inclusive, comprehensive analysis of the field for students and scholars. This book summarizes the current scope of research on children and the media, suggests directions for future research, and 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 and other electronic media.

The Handbook of Children and the Media is an outstanding text for classes and will provide students in communication, psychology, family studies, education, sociology, public policy, and related fields with a valuable reference work as they continue their studies in this important area. Beyond the classroom setting, policymakers, media professionals, and concerned parents will all find much to value in this landmark volume.

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.

Booknews
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)
