about

Updated in its 3rd edition, Lind’s Race/Gender/Class/Media contains 51 readings that help readers to think critically about issues of race and gender in the media. The readings address a multitude of topics in three major sections–Audience, Content, and Production–and approach the matter of race and gender in the media from rhetorical, social scientific, and critical/cultural perspectives. The author places strong importance to introducing the material in the text and orienting the reader to the content through overviews, context-specific introductions, and descriptions of each reading.
