New Textbook Coauthored by Annenberg’s Amy Jordan

The textbook Children, Adolescents, and the Media, Second Edition (Sage, 2009), is now available. Amy B. Jordan, Ph.D., director of the Media and the Developing Child Sector of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, is a new coauthor of the book, along with Victor C. Strasburger, M.D., University of New Mexico School of Medicine, and Barbara J. Wilson, Ph.D., Department of Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

These authorities in the field provide a comprehensive, research-oriented treatment of how children and adolescents interact with the media. Grounded in the media effects tradition, they target areas that are most controversial and at the heart of debates about mass media and public health.
