Overview

'This is one of the most important books on race, representation and politics to come along in a decade…. Sarita Malik's book is a brilliant contribution to the literature on race, cultural studies and public pedagogy' - Henry Giroux, Penn State University

Representing Black Britain offers a critical history of Black and Asian representation on British television from the earliest days of broadcasting to the present day. Working through programs as wide-ranging as the early documentaries to 'ethnic sitcoms' and youth television, this book provides a detailed analysis of shifting institutional contexts, images of 'race' and ethnic-minority cultural politics in modern Britain.
