This volume breaks new ground. Its ambitious goal is to deliver a holistic approach to children’s culture... Sonia Livingstone (United Kingdom) and Kirsten Drotner (Denmark) are well equipped for the job of attempting such a radically inclusive approach. Both scholars have conducted transnational empirical audience research, and are therefore not naive when it comes to the difficulties of such an enterprise. Both scholars are also
held in high esteem by European media policy institutions. They are appropriate public intellectuals to embark on a job of creating bridges between a range of geographically dispersed scholarly and political discourses...This edited collection provides a well-earthed contextual richness, as well as
a keen awareness of the contingent and ever-evolving nature of research data and commodified case studies as they relate to children and media. The volume provides a stimulating read for researchers in a range of disciplines. It also deserves to be recommended to media regulators, politicians and journalism students.
