CHOICE Review

In this book, Domine (Montclair State Univ.) advocates for practices, programs, and interventions that would foster media literacy--specifically health literacy--among adolescent youth. Using a social constructivist approach, Domine examines the historical connections among the adolescent youth culture, media technology, public health, and industrialization. She analyzes data from various sources to summarize the health challenges that adolescent youth currently confront and shows how the health and health literacy of adolescents have been marginalized, co-opted, and failed by the entwined institutions of public education, business and industry, technology, and politics. Her analysis of the commercialization and politicalization of youth health issues, such as federal school and breakfast programs and physical activity campaigns, is particularly enlightening. Ultimately, the most important contribution of Domine's work is her identification and description of effective adolescent health approaches and initiatives. Professionals who focus on adolescent health within the disciplines of public health, health education, and health promotion can find a foundation for their work in this interesting book that illustrates holistic health education through school-community initiatives and innovative partnerships. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals and practitioners. --Pat Lefler, Bluegrass Community & Technical College
