Television and Social Behavior; An Annotated Bibliography of Research Focusing on Television's Impact on Children.
Atkin, Charles K., Ed.; And Others
Approximately 300 annotated references to research on the impact of television and other visual media on the behavior and development of children are presented in three sections of this bibliography. The first section consists of reports about the type of fare offered to the public and the values and picture of life it presents. Literature in the second section deals with the viewers of television, the role of television in their lives, and the relationships between demographic variables and the viewers' program preferences. Research which assesses specific effects of viewing particular forms of visually presented stimuli is described in the third section. The scope of the review is limited to the entertainment and informational aspects of television, and citations are provided only for books and research papers up through January of 1971. An additional 250 references are included in an unannotated supplemental list. (Author/SH)
