9781901250596: This Virtual Life: Escapism and Simulation in Our Media World

As the media becomes more sophisticated and lifelike we spend more and more time in front of television screens. Distinguished psychologist Andrew Evans examines this warping of reality and asks where such a path will lead us. Our children are growing up thinking the world can be saved by super-heroes and people come back to life for the next round. Evans examines humor, comedy, science fiction, computer games and all the latest distractions that take our minds off the daily grind. How does this new media affect today's children? What will be their future?
