Overview

Represnting many of the worlds major regions, World Families Watch Television constitutes the first published collection of qualitative empirical studies analyzing the influence of television on the family. From a variety of theoretical perspectives, contributors discuss the concept of the family as defined in many cultures — including the UK, North and South America, Europe, South Asia, and the Far East. They go on to consider the basic features of television in each area, review major themes in its literature, and provide an original, qualitative empirical study of the relationship between family life and its specific culture.
