Studies of race and media are dominated by textual approaches that explore the politics of representation. But there is little understanding of how and why representations of race in the media take the shape that they do. How, one might ask, is race created by cultural industries?

In this important new book, Anamik Saha encourages readers to focus on the production of representations of racial and ethnic minorities in film, television, music and the arts. His interdisciplinary approach combines critical media studies and media industries research with postcolonial studies and critical race perspectives to reveal how political economic forces and legacies of empire shape industrial cultural production and, in turn, media discourses around race.

Race and the Cultural Industries is required reading for students and scholars of media and cultural studies, as well as anyone interested in why historical representations of 'the Other' persist in the media and how they are to be challenged.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I love this book. Alongside the justified, simmering rage concerning racism, there is careful and elegant analysis of the production systems behind the media's promotion and manifestations of racial inequality. This is a major contribution not only to media studies, but also to understandings of race and ethnicity in contemporary culture and society."
David Hesmondhalgh, University of Leeds

"In this carefully researched volume, Anamik Saha carves out an original and compelling approach for studying how the cultural industries shape the politics of race today, and how those industries need to change to allow more equitable societies to emerge. This book is required reading for every citizen, student, activist and scholar with a commitment to race and social justice."
Timothy Havens, The University of Iowa
