Description

How do the media cover the Middle East? Through a country-by-country approach, this book provides detailed analysis of the complexities of reporting from the Arab World. Each chapter provides an overview of a country, including the political context, relationships to international politics and the key elements relating to the place as covered in Western media. The authors explore how the media can be used to serve particular political agendas on both a regional and international level. They also consider the changes to the media landscape following the growth of digital and social media, showing how access to the media is no longer restricted to state or elite actors. By studying coverage of the Middle East from a whole range of news providers, this book shows how news formats and practices may be defined and shaped differently by different nations. It will be essential reading for scholars and practitioners of journalism, especially those focusing on the Arab World.

Review

‘This book offers interesting perspectives on Western media depictions of the Middle East from a range of Arab countries. The fact that the volume includes chapters on Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Palestine, predominantly by writers and scholars of Arab origins, makes a valuable contribution to existing literature on issues of media representation from and of the Arab world.’ – Dr Dima Saber, Senior Research Fellow, Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research
