Summary

'This is a mightily impressive book. David Buckingham surveys a great swathe of claims about children and their relations with the media, and confronts them with the solid array of real research. He then boldly addresses a series of living issues: from censorship for children to children's citizenship. You don't have to agree with every argument he makes or position he arrives at to recognise that this is a work of exceptional range and rich intelligence.' Martin Barker, University of Sussex 'After the Death of Childhood is an excellent summary and critique of the hype surrounding childhood and the media at the dawn of the 21st century. It debates issues with great flair and utmost clarity and draws conclusions that are of vital importance not only to educators and to those in the media, who should take Buckingham's message very seriously, but to all interested and informed adults.' Valerie Walkerdine, Foundation Professor of Critical Psychology at University of Western Sydney, Australia 'An overview of changes both in childhood and the media environment, based on extensive research ... He raises some important issues and dispels some fears.' CY Magazine 'Buckingham addresses the relationship between children and the media by focusing on both the changing patterns of media and the changing nature of childhood.' Reference and Research Book News 'This is an important and engaging book that will prove informative and challenging to literacy and English educators. It places the work on children and the media in historical context and suggests a way forward for research and policy developments.' Journal of Early Childhood Literacy 'a valuable addition to the ongoing debates over children and modern-day society' British Educational Research Journal
