Titre : The Wire: Race, Class, and Genre (Hardback)

Éditeur : The University of Michigan Press, United States

Date d'édition : 2012

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Few other television series have received as much academic, media, and fan celebration as The Wire, which has been called the best dramatic series ever created. The show depicts the conflict between Baltimore s police and criminals to raise a warning about race; drug war policing; de-industrialisation; and the inadequacies of America s civic, educational, and political institutions. The show s unflinching explorations of a city in crisis and its nuanced portrayals of those affected make it a show all about race and class in America. The essays in this volume offer a range of astute critical responses to this television phenomenon. More consistently than any other crime show of its generation, The Wire challenges viewers perceptions of the radicalisation of urban space and the media conventions that support this. The Wire reminds us of just how remarkably restricted the grammar of race is on American television and related media, and of the normative codings of race--as identity, as landscape--across urban narratives, from documentary to entertainment media.
