Winn examines all elements of contemporary childrens culture - television, childrens books, magazines, games, and above all, the new attitudes of parents and other adults - with the same ability to seek out basic questions and examine them boldly and honestly that she displays in her other endeavors. The result is a book that will alarm and inform, that will be read with equal interest by conservatives and liberals, parents and professionals, and all those concerned with the future of our society.
