Children, Media, and American History : Printed Poison, Pernicious Stuff, and Other Terrible Temptations Paperback / softback

Description

Printed poison. Pernicious stuff. Since the nineteenth century, these are some of the many concerned comments critics have made about media for children.

From dime novels to comic books to digital media, Cassidy illustrates the ways children have used "old media" when they were first introduced as "new media." Further, she interrogates the extent to which different conceptions of childhood have influenced adults' reactions to children's use of media.

Exploring the history of American children and media, this text presents a portrait of the way in which children and adults adapt to a constantly changing media environment.
