Children and Television Reviews


"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."
