Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From body image to social networking, the media has a huge influence on how we view ourselves and others and this engaging text is ideal for students studying media psychology for the first time. With coverage of media violence, celebrity culture and online behaviour, this is a comprehensive introduction to an important subject.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at students in high school and up, this addition to Palgrave's Insights in Psychology series features an accessible writing style with humor, and example boxes on topics of interest to students, such as the controversy over pro-anorexia websites. It introduces theories of media psychology and explores media influences on prosocial and antisocial behavior. Other themes include fandom, audience participation media, the psychology of news influence, psychology and the Internet, and the effect of a media-saturated environment on the child's developing brain. Two chapters are devoted to issues of media influence in the social world. The book includes an 8-page glossary, plus a reading guide for those studying or teaching A-level. Giles is a reader in media psychology at the University of Winchester, UK. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
