The emergence of the Internet as a global form of communication has raised issues regarding advertising to children. Is the Internet a broadcaster or a publisher? How does the First Amendment relate to Mass Communication? How do Internet technology and games modify children's development? Children and the World Wide Web examines both the legal issues, specifically the regulation of the Internet, and the behavioral issues that are central to a discussion of children and the Internet.
