Jordan’s Book Receives Positive Review in Journal of Children and Media

Children, Adolescents, and the Media by Amy Jordan, Ph.D., Director of the Media and the Developing Child sector of the Annenberg Public Policy Center (with Victor C. Strasburger and Barbara J. Wilson, Sage Publications, 2009), was reviewed in the Journal of Children and Media (Vol. 4, No. 4, 2010).   

Reviewer John P. Murray, Ph.D., Research Fellow in Psychology at Washington College, writes the book is “a useful primer for professionals who want an overview of the field of media effects research. I wish that more of them had this book on [the] shelf for reference, inspiration, and understanding. It is heartening to see this compilation of research and the careful writing that is displayed in this text. It is destined to be a classic teaching and research tool for students and professionals.”
