Description

This urgently relevant book examines both the role and representations of Muslims in the news media, particularly within a climate of threat, fear and misunderstanding. Written by both leading academic authorities and by Muslim media practitioners, "Muslims and the Media" is designed as a comprehensive and critical textbook and is set in both the British and international contexts. The book clearly establishes the links between context, content, production and audiences thus reflecting the entire cycle of the communication process and revealing the ways in which meaning is produced and reproduced in the news media. Looking closely at the circumstances and politics surrounding the representation of Muslims across a wide range of journalistic genres, at the presence and influence of Muslims in the processes of news production, and the ways in which audiences, both Muslim and non-Muslim, consume this media, the book brings together coherently a wide range of perspectives to provide crucial insights into the representation - and misrepresentation - of Islam and Muslims today.

Accessibly written for students and indispensable for practitioners, it will also provide a broader audience with a lively understanding of ever more critical political and media issues.
