    Dedicated with much love to Jian Shi and our daughter Zhenni Shi Ruddock, born on 20 February 2011


    I'd like to thank my many co-authors and editors who have, in the course of working with me on different projects, given vital help in articulating the ideas behind Youth and Media. The chance to collaborate with Brett Hutchins and David Rowe has been especially appreciated, and I owe a huge debt of thanks to James Nicholls for our advice on alcohol research. Virginia Nightingale, Jim Shanahan, Michael Morgan, Nancy Signorelli, Helena Bilandzic, Geoffroy Patriarche, Paul Traudt, Johanna Sumiala, Glenn Muschert and Lemi Baruh have all given invaluable guidance on my writing. Your time has been much appreciated.

    I've also been very lucky to have expert eyes cast over drafts, and thanks go to Nick Couldry, Jukka Jouhki, Graham Meikle, James Stanyer, Andrys Onsman and Philip Flavin for their help. Special thanks to James for giving me early access to his excellent book.

    Writing this was hard, but it was much easier than having a c-section, or spending your first two weeks of life in an incubator with a tube up your nose. Love and admiration to the redoubtable Jian Shi and our little Zhenni. Gratitude and love to Zhang Chen Xiang, Shi Qin Qun and Christine Ruddock for being around when we needed them.

    As ever, this is written in the memory of David Ruddock, who served crown and country for 39 of his 57 years, and without whom nothing would have been written.
