Media expert and activist Kathryn C. Montgomery examines how contemporary media changes the nature of
childhood. She charts the historical trends that made children a target group during the early
commercialization of the Internet; she describes what lead to a law to protect children's privacy on the
Internet, and examines how digital marketing taps into teenagers' developmental needs. Generation Digital
offers help for creating a safe, equitable digital culture for young people.
