'Focusing on visually mediated culture and linguistic discourses, and revealing all as sites of power / knowledge, interpellation and so on, this book will surely seize the imagination of new undergraduates. It will prove helpful to teachers, too, not least because it includes comprehensive exercises and further activities within each chapter. It could therefore constitute a complete course resource.' - Times Higher Education Supplement
