9780791439302: Cultural Diversity and the U.S. Media (Suny Series, Human Communication Processes) (Suny Series in Human Communication Processes)

Combining case studies and critical analysis, this book examines how the electronic and print media's representation of cultural groups such as African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Chicanos contribute to the understanding (and misunderstanding) of this country's cultural experience.

This book provides rich and detailed accounts of how the media filters racial/ethnic identity through economic or sensationalized perspectives in newspapers, films, television, and radio. By exploring media descriptions of various racial/ethnic groups, Cultural Diversity and the U.S. Media provides opportunities to discover, debate, and discuss issues surrounding race/ethnicity and the role of the media in American society.

"Observational materials and interpretations are presented in a simple, concrete, straightforward way, representing many diverse social perspectives and media sites. A great deal of information is presented that is highly informative to the reader about cultural diversity and its portrayal and misportrayal in various media." -- Gerry Philipsen, author of Speaking Culturally: Explorations in Social Communication

"Cultural Diversity and the U.S. Media adds to the increasing body of scholarship in a vital area of interest and importance to the United States. The demographic shifts in the nation's population makes it imperative that media scholars and practitioners know more about this subject." -- Clint C. Wilson, II, Howard University
