Overview

Framing Class: Media Representations of Wealth and Poverty in America / Edition 2

Focusing on newspaper articles and television entertainment programs Kendall (sociology, Baylor U.) explores how myths and negative stereotypes about the working class and the poor construct a reality that seemingly justifies the superior position of the upper-middle and upper classes, and establishes them as entitled to the privileged position in the stratification system.
