Racism and the Mass Media.
Hartmann, Paul; Husband, Charles
The authors of this book analyze and discuss the treatment of race by the mass media, examining through survey data the response of white Britons to immigration by colored ethnic groups. The main focus of the study was on the beliefs and attitudes of adolescents. Results of the survey show that the mass media have played an important role in defining for the white public the meaning of blacks living in Britain, the prevailing nature of which is negative. Chapter titles are as follows: "The British Response to Coloured Immigration,""British Images of the Black Man,""The Study of Prejudice,""The Design of the Study,""Attitudes and the Mass Media,""Definitions of the Situation,""Race in the British Press,""The News Media and Race Relations,""The Entertainment Media," and"Conclusion." Six appendixes include material related to the survey. (JM)
