The new edition examines the proliferation of new forms of electronic media such as video and Internet enabled mobile phones, iPods, iPads, and Kindle that are accessible to even some of the youngest children, as well as the introduction of blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, Skype and texting as forms of communication among young people and adults.
Fully revised and updated, this Second Edition of a popular text is:
Authoritative: The respected experience of Dorothy and Jerome Singer, coupled with an outstanding team of contributing authors, makes this the most authoritative volume available on this topic.
Comprehensive: More than 30 chapters in 3 sections examine the psychological, health, and social effects of media on children and their development, the media industry and environment, and policy issues and advocacy.
Cutting Edge: Debates surrounding important policy decisions in this area are often largely uninformed by empirical evidence. This text reviews diverse research and is a touchstone work in this area.
