Description

It is a widely held view that, since the end of the Cold War, attention has focused on Islam as a central force of disruption within a New World Order. Nothing has heightened this more than the assault on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, and the reporting of these events. Reporting Islam is a timely contribution to this debate which looks at the ways in which Muslims are represented in the British news media. Elizabeth Poole examines the claim that Muslims are universally demonized in the British press and comes to some illuminating conclusions. Reporting Islam is of great value to students of media, cultural studies, Islamic studies and politics.

Review

"The book under review is one of the few that has tackled the coverage of the British Muslim Community in the media comprehensively and thoroughly... This is an excellent piece of work"
Church Times"

it is difficult to overestimate the importance of the topic of this book.""

The study is very informative and well contextualized.""

definitely a book that would be of great interest to media studies students, as well as to those specializing in the study of religions and in the history of British multiculturalism."
