Book by None


'The chapter authors provide a nuanced perspective that goes well beyond the media-driven headlines and well-worn social policy tropes. By probing beneath conventional categories such as digital divides, digital natives/immigrants and generation gaps, they are able to provide one of the most sophisticated analyses to date of the relationship between age, cohort and media use. Anyone concerned about generational issues of media use will profit from reading this volume.' James E Katz, The State University of New Jersey, USA 'This incisive and wide-ranging collection offers nuanced and subtle insights into the complexities of people's uses of digital technologies, recognising that individual differences increase with age. From teenagers' experiences of parental surveillance through to the "oldest old" (85+ years), these rigorous case studies critically illuminate our relationships with digital technologies and provide ample food for thought and further research.' Lelia Green, Edith Cowan University, Australia and author The Internet: An introduction to new media 'Generational use of new media is an inspiring and worthwhile collection of research on the different ways in which various generations use new media, the problems they encounter and possible solutions to them... the research represented in the collection offers some surprising findings, particularly regarding the media competence of younger users...' Information, Communication & Society 'Carefully organized, this book is a stimulating contribution to further research and to informed policies aimed at assuring digital inclusion from pre-adolescents to the "oldest olds". By refusing to consider younger and older generations as homogenous entities, the book demonstrates the need to take into account the distinct subpopulations, namely within the broader group of senior citizens.' European Journal of Communication '... a rich, critical analysis of key issues... This text provides a rich, critical analysis of key issues relating to age and the use of new media and, as such, is to be recommended as an extremely useful work for anyone involved in critical media research and policy development. As a collection, this empirically-focused work brings timely and necessary insight to a debate which often lacks tangible political responses due to a lazy focus on blunt categorisations.' LSE Review of Books 'The diverse approaches of the chapters will appeal to different audiences. Some of the applied chapters will be useful to people working in this area and looking for practical suggestions to implement design while others will be valuable to people thinking about the difficult questions emerging in this field and give a flavour of the complexity of the topic.' Ageing & Society The book Generational Use of New Media gives a good overview of a range of perspectives for studying new media use by different generations. The diversity of perspectives is a result not only of the multidisciplinarity of the presented research but also of the different types of links between the main topic and the specific research questions: generational use of new media is treated as a starting point for investigations of one generation's use, as a basis for exploring different generations' perceptions and experiences with the same media, and as a concept to be critically examined, either in terms of its accompanying assumptions or its analytical value. International Journal of Ageing and Later Life
