Children and Television: A Global Perspective

Children and Television: A Global Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers a magisterial overview on children and television from the accumulated global literature in this field of the past 50 years, combining both the American tradition, influenced heavily by developmental psychological studies, as well as the European tradition, characterized by more sociological and cultural studies perspectives to the field. Similarly, it draws together a methodological diversity from both the quantitative – experimental and survey research, together with the qualitative – ethnographic and interview – research of children and television.

With a distinctively international approach, Children and Television highlights the global perspective in each of the chapters, balancing the need to contextualize television in children’s lives in their unique cultural spaces, as well as searching for universal understandings that hold true for children around the world.

About the Author

“An integrated analysis of research from all over the world on interrelationships between children and television in various national cultural contexts… Her book profits from her work in three areas of the world (the US, Europe, and Israel) [and] from her 25 years of research on this subject… Recommended.” CHOICE

"Dafna Lemish offers up an overview of everything you ever wanted to know about children and television."

Video Age

"Children and Television is a very nicely crafted text that

chronicles the integration of television into the lives of children and their

families over the past 50 years. Given its accessible style, the text

should have appeal within the academic community and among the lay

public. In fact, the latter stand to gain the most in terms of better

understanding, from a scientifically substantiated vantage point, of how

television has fit into children's lives today and how it will prepare them

for the inevitable integration of more sophisticated media forms into

their lives tomorrow." PsycCRITIQUES
