Summary
This book reveals how the popular media contributes to widespread myths and misunderstanding about cultural diversity. Along with updated media examples, expanded theories and analysis, this edition explores even more deeply the coverage of race in two chapters, discusses more broadly how men and boys are depicted in the media and socialized, and how class issues have become even more visible during the Great Recession of the 21st century and the Occupy movement
