About the book
The revised edition of 20 Questions about Youth and the Media is an updated and comprehensive guide to today’s most compelling issues in the study of children, tweens, teens and the media. The editors bring together leading experts to answer the kinds of questions an undergraduate student might ask about the relationship between young people and media. In so doing, the book addresses a range of media, from cartoons to the Internet, from advertising to popular music, and from mobile phones to educational television. The diverse array of topics include government regulation, race and gender, effects (both prosocial and risky), kids’ use of digital media, and the commercialization of youth culture. This book is designed with the undergraduate youth/children and media classroom in mind, and features accessible writing and end-of-chapter discussion questions and exercises.
“For youth born digital, 20 Questions about Youth and the Media will be as immersive as a novel. The world’s leading scholars compellingly dissect children’s media’s evolution, disruption and repetition over more than a half-century. Their personal writing styles invite curiosity, then reward it with stimulating questions and exercises that would challenge industry veterans as well as students.”
David Kleeman, Children’s Media Analyst and Strategist
Praise for the First Edition of
20 Questions about Youth and the Media
"This readable, comprehensive compendium could be titled ‘Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Youth and Media.’ Its broad scope covers politics, research, social aspects, and history, providing background, insights, and up-to-date information on numerous topics, from longtime debates over violence and television, to the recent controversy over indecency in broadcasting, to contemporary research on how young people are using the Internet and digital media. It is an essential resource for students, parents, policy makers, and the press."
Kathryn C. Montgomery, Professor, School of Communication, American University; Author, Generation Digital: Politics, Commerce, and Childhood in the Age of the Internet
