Nations are more than geo-political bodies, more than collections of people and institutions within defined sovereign territories. Nations are discursive constructs, In recent years scholars have increasingly recognised that discourses of national identity are gendered and racialised in ways that both mirror and mould power relations. This book examines links between gender, race and national identity by analysing a range of mass mediated and pop-cultural ?texts? in four nations, Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The book has a broad empirical base and offers an analysis using the techniques of traditional content analysis, Critical Discourse Analysis, comparative sociology and feminist cultural studies. It will certainly appeal across these subdisciplines.
