Gender, Race and Class in Media examines the mass media as economic and cultural institutions that shape our social identities. Through analyses of popular mass media entertainment genres, such as talk shows, soap operas, television sitcoms, advertising and pornography, students are invited to engage in critical mass media scholarship. A comprehensive introductory section outlines the book's integrated approach to media studies, which incorporates three distinct but related areas of investigation: the political economy of production, textual analysis and audience response. The readings include a dozen new original essays, edited for maximum accessibility. The book provides:

- A comprehensive, critical introduction to Media Studies

- An analysis of race that is integrated into all chapters

- Articles on Cultural Studies that are accessible to undergraduates

- An extensive bibliography and section on media resources

- Expanded coverage of "queer" representations in mass media

- A new section on the violence debates

- A new section on the Internet

Together with new section introductions, these provide a comprehensive critical introduction to mass media studies.
