- Offers an integrative view on children and television from the accumulated global literature in this field of the last 50 years.
- Combines both the American tradition, influenced heavily by the developmental psychological studies, as well as the European tradition, characterized by a more sociological and cultural studies perspective to the field.
- Draws together a methodological diversity from both the quantitative- experimental and survey research, together with the qualitative- ethnographic and interview research of children and television.
- Highlights the global perspective in each of the chapters, balancing the need to contextualize television in children's lives in their unique cultural spaces, as well as searching for universal understandings that hold true for children around the world.
