About this title


The Handbook of Children, Media and Development brings together an interdisciplinary group of experts in the fields of developmental psychology, developmental science, communication, and medicine to provide an authoritative, comprehensive look at the empirical research on media and media policies within the field.

  • 25 newly–commissioned essays bring new research to the forefront, especially on digital media, developmental research, and public policy debates
  • Includes helpful introductions to each section, a theoretical overview of the field, and a final chapter that offers a vision of future research
  • Contributors include key, international authorities in the field


"This handbook is a meticulously researched "tour–de–force" of the role media play in shaping child and family development. Through a multi–disciplinary analysis of the varied impacts the media are having on children′s learning, social interactions and healthy development, the handbook offers an authoritative, balanced perspective, while identifying pressing issues to be addressed by policymakers. The handbook is a must read for those who wish to understand the rich and subtle ways media influence children′s lives every day."
Michael Levine, PhD, Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop

"This book assembles the most accomplished researchers in the field and presents in–depth and theoretically driven analyses of the most important research advances, including novel theorizing on recent technological innovations in the media. Essential as a text or reference for students, scholars, and policymakers. Understandable to undergraduates, but with depth and accuracy that scholars will appreciate."
Joanne Cantor, Director, Center for Communication Research, University of Wisconsin–Madison

"Calvert and Wilson have gathered together a collection of papers providing up–to–the–moment research on how children use and are influenced by various mass media, but also on the business models underlying the industry and an array of possible policies and interventions designed to protect children. Students, scholars, policy–makers and parents will all find this book an invaluable resource."
Donald F. Roberts, Thomas More Storke Professor Emeritus, Stanford University
