About the Author:

Diana Kendall is professor of sociology at Baylor University where she was named an Outstanding Professor. She is the author of numerous books, including The Power of Good Deeds and Members Only, as well as two bestselling textbooks, Sociology in Our Times and Social Problems in a Diverse Society.

Review:

A provocative and innovative book! Politicians pontificate on 'class warfare,' yet know little about class realities that savvy social scientist Diana Kendall probes in depth. With a critical eye, Kendall assesses the validity of media framing of upper, middle, and working class Americans' lives, past and present. Remarkably little studied in contemporary social science and investigative journalism, U.S. class images and experiences finally get the in-depth and comparative attention they deserve. (Joe R. Feagin, Texas A&M University)

Framing Class explains how media shape our (mis)conceptions of the class structure. An insightful, gracefully written, and entertaining book. (Dennis Gilbert, Hamilton College; author of The American Class Structure)

The second edition of Framing Class is a real find! Ideal for classroom use: comprehensive, accessible, and engaging. (Abby L. Ferber, director, The Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion, University of Colorado)
