This fascinating text introduces readers to postcolonial theory using the context of British media culture in ethnic minority communities to explain key ideas and debates. Each chapter considers a specific media output and uses a wealth of examples to offer an absorbing insight into postcolonial media for all students of cultural and media studies.

This is a unique text as it combines postcolonial theory with media texts (representations, policies and practices)?

This text will appeal to many different courses, media, film and communication studies but also postcolonial studies, sociology/cultural studies, ethnic and racial studies.

The individual chapters are all original work and lecturers and tutors will be able to use individual chapters for different modules. For example the chapter on music (The Politics of Hip Hop and Cultural Resistance: a BritishAsian Perspective by Amir Saeed)?could be used on popular music courses as well as media and communication courses

The range of media discussed is comprehensive and the first chapter indicates how postcolonial theory can be 'mapped' onto the study of media

The art images for the chapter Alien Nation: Contemporary Black Art in Britain by Leon Wainwright are exceptional and we were very happy to be granted copyrights for an academic text.
