Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Previous Editions:

“Thoughtful and illuminating.”
Contemporary Sociology

“An important contribution to the field of education as it is one of the few books that successfully makes the argument as to why (in very concrete terms) educators must pay attention to cultural studies.”
Educational Research

“A worthy study by all who work with children.”
Educational Leadership

“This is a brilliant book, a critical, interpretive undoing of North America and her children. We have waited too long for this analysis of child rearing, media-made children, and the postmodern family. This is the very best of critical pedagogy and cultural studies.”
Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

“We have placed the lives of our children in the hands of media capitalists who are redefining and reshaping childhood. It is about time that cultural critics take this issue seriously. Steinberg and Kincheloe’s collection opens up the possibility of a rigorous and scholarly debate in what must be one of the most important issues of our time.”
Larry Grossberg, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

“A seminal contribution to our understanding of the role media and popular culture play in the socialization of children and youth in America… The picture that emerges from the book is alarming and terrifying, but also one that gives us some reason for optimism: terrifying, because it spells out, in considerable detail, the deleterious effects media culture is having upon our children, but hopeful in that it alerts us to the dangers our media poses for children and suggests ways of countering it.”
Arthur Asa Berger, Author of Bloom’s Morning

Contemporary Sociology
Thoughtful and illuminating.
