Are children today growing up too soon? How do they - and their parents - feel about media portrayals of sex and personal relationships? Are the media a corrupting influence, or a potentially positive and useful resource for young people? Drawing on an extensive research project, which investigated children's interpretations of sexual content in films, TV and print media, this book considers how young people (aged 9-17) use such material to understand their experiences and build their identities, and how they and their parents respond to public concerns about these issues. The book offers a clearly written and entertaining insight into children's and parents' perspectives on these difficult issues - perspectives that are often ignored or trivialised in public debate.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Hodges's book thoughtfully challenges the monolithic view of chivalry which most or all readers have brought to the Morte. Readers will gain useful insights from his comments. Hodges's regular return to the question of the role(s) of women in chivalric communities is likewise well conceived, and his challenges to such acknowledged authorities on the issue as Dorsey Armstrong and Geraldine Heng are stimulating." - D. Thomas Hanks Jr., Journal of English and Germanic Philology
