From Stuart Hall's classic study of racially-structured societies to an interview by Manthia Diawara with Sonia Boyce, a leading figure in the black British arts movement, the papers included here have transformed cultural studies through their sustained focus on the issue of race. Much of the book centres on black British arts, especially film, ranging from an historical overview of black British cinema to an evaluation of the costly burden on black artists of representing their communities. Other essays consider such topics as race and representation, and colonial and post-colonial discourse. This anthology should be of use as a resource for those interested in cultural studies. It also has much to offer students of anthropology, sociology, media and film studies, and literary criticism.
