Key features include:
- Varied and diverse material to fit a range of approaches, covering both political economy and cultural studies approaches, synthesising a range of critical theoretical approaches.
- Theory that's tied to the real world so students relate concepts to everyday issues. Case studies are cutting edge, from the representation of immigrants and Islam in the news, to 'digital race' and online environments.
- Questions or provocations that open each chapter, to challenge readers to think differently and critically, followed by end of chapter key concept boxes with discussion questions.
- Recommended reading and additional boxed case studies tying theory to practice
