Television and Youth: 25 Years of Research and Controversy.
Murray, John P.
Television's impact on children is the focus of this document, which includes a review of the research on the subject, a master bibliography containing 3,000 items written between 1955 and the present, and 13 specialized bibliographies. Specific topics addressed include violence and its effects, prosocial television, socialization, television advertising, role portrayals, educational television and cognitive development, audience patterns, viewing processes, and public policy and private action. A bibliography of bibliographies is also included, as well as a listing of materials written since 1975. The items listed in the master bibliography are presented with full bibliographic information and a key line indicating the specialized bibliographies under which that item will be found. Only three of the specialized bibliographies, however, include full bibliographic citations; the rest include only the author and date of publication in order to conserve space. (LLS)
