Overview

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.

Discourse and Discrimination is valuable reading for students and scholars in linguistics, discourse analysis, mass communication, sociology, social psychology, and black and ethnic studies.
