Synopsis

This collection offers original, state-of-the-art contributions from leading authorities in children's televisual media. International researchers from communication and psychology provide readers with ready access to current televisual research, trends, and policy-making/political climate issues pertaining to children.

This volume informs ongoing debates across a broad spectrum of current critical issues, and suggests avenues for future research. It is pertinent and provocative for the most sophisticated scholar in the field, as well as for students in areas of developmental or social psychology, communication, education, sociology, marketing, broadcasting and film, public policy, advertising, and medicine/pediatrics. It is also appropriate for courses in children, media, and society.
