`Will prove useful as a textbook in key areas of cultural studies' - Feminist Review

`An interesting book by virtue of the diversity of analyses, methods, and information used' - Contemporary Psychology


Without doubt, the book has several qaulities. It shows in a clear way the possible intersections of sociological treory and the politics of antiracism. It remains a classic in that field. Still, with a closer inspection, I found out that the topics discussed in the book doesn't really fit in with the content of the course.
