Television and Behavior. Ten Years of Scientific Progress and Implications for the Eighties. Volume II: Technical Reviews.
Pearl, David, Ed; And Others
This volume and its companion offer an update and elaboration of information presented in the 1972 Report of the Surgeon General's Advisory Committee on Television and Behavior. This volume largely incorporates edited versions of commissioned integrative reviews of the scientific literature of the past decade which were used in the formulation of the update, together with introductory comments for each topic area. The 24 papers presented address such issues as cognitive and affective aspects of television viewing; violence and aggression; social beliefs and social behavior; television in social relations; television and health; and television in American society. Although much of the research has been conducted with child and adolescent subjects, the new report is not limited to influences of the medium on this age group. Within this broadened context, the orientation of the report is to elucidate research findings and their implications for public health and future research. Individual papers include data tables and reference lists. (LMM)
