This volume and its companion case studies book deal with some of the people, groups, and classes who are living a disenfranchised existence in the United States. Whether through birth, life events, or unfortunate circumstances, they are denied full privileges, rights, and power within the existing societal structure. Centered around societal health problems as they relate to socioeconomic status, family, abuse, and health concerns, these volumes examine salient issues from several theoretical frameworks, including feminist theory and the social construction of reality. Communication and Disenfranchisement provides theory-based essays on topics such as the homeless, adult survivors of sexual assault, battered women, persons with disabilities, impoverished women, the indigent living in the inner city, persons with HIV/AIDS, the terminally ill, and the elderly. Case Studies in Communication and Disenfranchisement provides parallel case studies, applying the issues and concepts discussed in the essays. Used together, these books provide theoretically-based applications of social health issues within a communication framework. Traditionally, health communication research has emphasized the communication-physical health relationship. Inadvertently, this primary focus has restricted what information has been included under the domain of health communication. These books expand that domain by examining how the communication-disenfranchisement relationship is accomplished, managed, and overcome, and by recognizing the significance of the pragmatic and theoretic implications of this inquiry.

Ungleiche soziale Verhältnisse und eine fehlende soziale Integration stehen im Widerspruch zu den Gleichheitsgrundsätzen moderner demokratischer Gesellschaften. In einer Zeit, in der die soziale Frage durch verschärfte Chancenungleichheit, Bildungsunterschiede und Probleme bei der Integration in die Mehrheitsgesellschaft unübersehbar wird, geraten mediale Thematisierungen der gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse sowie personalisierte Repräsentationen und Inszenierungen der "Anderen" oder der so genannten "neuen Unterschicht" in den Blick. Die AutorInnen des Sammelbandes legen theoretisch wie auch empirisch fundierte Studien unterschiedlicher Medienangebote vor und diskutieren, wie Formate des Reality-TV, Comedysendungen oder Krimiserien soziale, kulturelle, geschlechtliche und ethnische Diversitäten in westlichen Industriegesellschaften reproduzieren, legitimieren, aber auch unterlaufen können.
