Subject: Offering a systematic analysis of how race and ethnicity are represented in the news, this book charts a change in British news media coverage. Ranging across subjects such as migration, asylum-seekers and crime, as well as stories that are concerned to expose racism and advocate for racial justice, such as the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry, it provides an accessible introduction to the conceptual tools available for the analysis of "race" and racism in the media. It concludes by offering an assessment of the role of positive action strategies in journalism, together with analysis of their impact on patterns of representation and institutional racism in news organizations.
