Abstract:

The press is generally regarded as a reliable source of information with
however the capacity to propagate ideologies, social conceptions and beliefs.
In this regard, it seems evident that the social role of the press can by no
means be underestimated: it can influence our knowledge, values and social
codes through linguistic and other semiotic means, sometimes hidden under a
euphemistic lexical disguise holding up a liberal and apparently respectful
discourse.

The relationship between the press and society is a very complex one that
requires careful conceptualisation so that it is possible to understand why
texts in general and texts related to immigration in particular are created in
the ways they are and not in other ways. The press offers access to all sorts
of information but also has the power to create or modify attitudes. Each
image and each linguistic component used to transmit a message is not
predetermined or chosen at random but, on the contrary, is the outcome of a
complex process, involving many phenomena, in which there is nevertheless
discernable a clear purpose.

The following book pays attention to the discursive and visual elements that
are involved in reproducing ethnic and racial prejudices in contemporary press
discourse. Our present reality is characterised by a moment of economic
crisis, and it is a contention of the book that this affects the treatment of
immigration, particularly in the press, which tends to refer to immigrants as
a people-problem of some description or other. Therefore, the purpose of this
book is to describe major aspects of discourse related to immigration within
the present social context of economic crisis.
