Product description


This is an enormously important book that documents with meticulous scholarship the way in which immigrants have been stigmatised by the British media. It offers a compelling analysis of what is omitted from media accounts, which voices are left unheard, how simplifications and stereotypes are generated, and the consequences of this prejudiced reporting for immigrant communities who feel themselves to be under constant attack. (Professor James Curran, Goldsmiths, University of London)

'the group has made an invaluable contribution to what has become one of the most emotive political issues of recent decades.' (Lee Bunce, postmag.org)

'an important book that is an essential corrective to the lies much of the media continue to spread about refugees.' (Ian Sinclair, author of The march that shook Blair: An oral history of 15 February 2003)

'this short book is very informative and readable. It is timely and relevant following the orgy of racism in January with the press panic over an imminent invasion of "Bulgarians and Romanians".' (Margaret Woods, Socialist Review)

'skilful and often brilliant exposé on news and media culture' (Sanjoy Banerjee, Column F)
