Summary
From the vogue for very young models to the explosion in the juvenile crime rate, childhood in America today is in precipitous decline. Deftly marshaling a vast array of historical and demographic research, Postman suggests that the divisions between childhood and adulthood are eroding under the barrage of television, which turns the adult secrets of sex and violence into popular entertainment
