From Internet censorship to sex and violence on television and in video games to debates over rock lyrics, the media and their affect on children and adolescents is one of the most widely debated issues in our society. Our planned Encyclopedia of Children, Adolescents, and the Media presents state-of-the-art research and ready-to-use facts on the media's interaction with children and adolescents. This book's 400-500 entries and appendices cover the traditional and electronic media and their controversial impact--for good and ill--on children and adolescents. Entries cover television, film, video games, the Internet and World Wide Web, magazines, music, and more. Also treated: complex and difficult topics such as violence, sex, rating systems and warning labels, attention-deficit disorder, body image and eating disorders, popular music lyrics, advertising, digital music downloading, parental involvement, policymaking, child development, and much more.
