MEDIA REVIEWS
?Catherine Luther, Naeemah Clark, and Carolyn Lepre have authored the most important, accessible, and comprehensive textbook on US media representations of minority and marginalized groups that has appeared for many years. With separate chapters dedicated to Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanics, Arabs and Arab Americans, Asian and Asian Americans, gender, LGBT, age, disability and social class, this sophisticated but highly readable text draws from a wide range of research traditions including political economy, identity theory, media effects, and psychological impacts.? - Oliver Boyd-Barrett, Bowling Green State University ?This publication has arrived at the right moment for students, researchers, and media professionals. Media should reflect a diverse society but often do not. Luther, Clark, and Lepre have presented material that should be a must-read for those in a modern society, or those hoping to create one.? - Douglas A. Boyd, Professor of Communication, University of Kentucky
