Reviews

“The book shows how media affect Western public opinion and audiences’ perceptions and understanding of Islam and Muslims. … It constitutes a useful reading for those who are interested in media studies, public opinion, politics and international relations.” (Marwa Fikry Abdel Samei, Journal of Global Analysis, Vol. 6 (1), January, 2016)

'At a time when Muslims are ever more prominent in international news, what more can be said about the relationship between Muslims and the media? Including primary research and scholarly debate with first hand experiences of journalists reporting on the ground, this book makes a significant and engaging contribution. With an international outlook and chapters focusing on news production and the role of new technologies the authors widen the scope of study in this important area. Essential reading for newsmakers and analysts alike.' - Elizabeth Poole, Keele University, UK

'With their study of the conflicts, crises, and contexts of this sensitive subject, the authors have certainly contributed to a better understanding of the media, its logic, and the complexities of the Muslim world. Anyone covering the Middle East and those interested in the role the media plays in shaping our opinions will profit from this book.' - Tessa Szyszkowitz, LSE Review of Books, 2014

"Media Framing of the Muslim World could contribute to classes on media and society and media and religion as supplementary reading...its discussion of how and why the West often misunderstands the world's second largest religion is provocative, timely, and accessible and deserves consideration." - John P. Ferré, Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly
