Overview

Although there is a large body of popular and scholarly literature on multiculturalism, there are few communications-oriented studies of political outsiders. Politics at the Margin fills this gap by analyzing how oppressed citizens—women, African Americans, and political radicals—create their own media for, and styles of, public expression.
