 About the Book 

Taking as a starting point proposed definitions of race, ethnicity, and their media representation, the authors draw upon their own and others research in a variety of locations - the United Kingdom, the United States, the Nordic nations, Australia,MoreTaking as a starting point proposed definitions of race, ethnicity, and their media representation, the authors draw upon their own and others research in a variety of locations - the United Kingdom, the United States, the Nordic nations, Australia, Russia, Latin America and elsewhere - to review a series of new or relatively untapped dimensions for anti-racist media research. These include indigenous peoples media, videogames, ultra-rightist media, and a fresh reading of the public sphere concept. The range of topics addressed and their comparative treatment move this books analysis beyond the standard British and American research narrative, while engaging critically with its achievements and shortcomings.
