This collection of essays from scholars in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, examines how biases against minorities in the U.S. and western Europe are perpetuated directly and indirectly through such media channels as newspapers, television coverage, everyday language use, and through the educational curriculum, teacher attitudes, and teacher-student interaction. Written especially for this volume, the essays demonstrate how the dominant population controls not only what happens to subordinate populations, but also how the general public perceives that reality. Discourse and Discrimination is valuable reading for students and scholars in linguistics, discourse analysis, mass communication, sociology, social psychology, and black and ethnic studies.
