Forthcoming Titles

Focusing on experience in Britain and the US, this book explains how the preschool television sector has shifted from an essentially small localized and economically restricted industry to become a much more complex, commercially-driven global business. 

This book offers readers insights into the transformations taking place in the
presentation of gender portrayals in television productions aimed at
younger audiences. It goes far beyond a critical analysis of the
existing portrayals of gender and culture by sharing media
professionals’ action-oriented recommendations for change that would
promote gender equity, social diversity and the wellbeing of children.

Why are young people alienated from television news? This book argues that contemporary trends indicating deepening disconnection from news about public life reflect problems both with the way television news covers politics and with the nature of politics itself under neo-liberal capitalism.
