Saturday Morning Censors
Television Regulation Before the V-chip

Hendershot, Heather
Publisher:  Duke University Press
Year Published:  1998  
Pages:  285pp   Price:  23.95   ISBN:  0822322404
Resource Type:  Book

Examines the history of adults' attempts to safeguard children from the violence, sexism, racism, and commercialism on television since the 1950s. By focusing on what censorship and regulation are and how they work -- rather than on whether they should exist -- Hendershot shows how adults use these processes to reinforce their own ideas about childhood innocence.
