For the first time in the academic debate, this volume outlines the theoretical issues and explires some results from empirical researches on the relationship between generations and the media in so called digital society. The first part of the book deals with the theoretical debate on generations, from Mannheim's to the revisiting of some classical notions shaped by disciplines as history, demography, marketing and sociology. The second part gathers a selection of researches at international level, with particular attention to the European context.
