   schema:reviewBody ""With authors Victor C. Strasburger, Barbara J. Wilson, and Amy B. Jordan at the lead, an introduction by Dorothy G. Singer, and contributed chapters by Edward Donnerstein, Jeanne B. Funk, and Robert McCannon, the Second Edition of Children, Adolescents, and the Media boasts a scholarly all-star cast. These authorities in the field provide a comprehensive, research-oriented treatment of how children and adolescents interact with the media. Grounded in the media effects tradition, they target areas that are most controversial and at the heart of debates about mass media and public health. Each chapter reviews the latest findings as well as groundbreaking studies in such areas as advertising, violence, video games, sexuality, drugs, music, and the Internet. Each chapter is also liberally sprinkled with illustrations, examples from the media, policy debates, and real-life instances of media impact." "This is an ideal text for courses in areas such Child Development, Consumer Psychology, Media and Society, Mass Communication, and Media Effects in departments of psychology and communication."--Jacket." ;
