Young People and New Media
Childhood and the Changing Media Environment

First Edition
  • Sonia Livingstone - London School of Economics and Political Science, London School of Economics, UK, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK


April 2002 | 278 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Combining a comprehensive literature review with original empirical research on young people's use of new media, this book provides a fresh and in-depth discussion of the increasingly complex relationship between the media and childhood, the family and the home.

We can no longer imagine our daily lives without media and communication technologies. At the start of the 21st century, the home is being transformed into the site of a multimedia culture. This book looks at the discussions around the potential benefits of this new media and asks: What impact are the new media having on childhood and adolescence? Are these technologies changing the nature of young people's leisure and sociability? and has the participation of children in private and public life changed?
