Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of renowned scholars from around the world, the Handbook of Children and the Media is an all-inclusive, comprehensive analysis of the field for students and researchers. 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 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.
