Al-Jazeera: How the Free Arab News Network Scooped the World and Changed the Middle East Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Al-Jazeera, the independent, all-Arab television news network based in Qatar, emerged as ambassador to the Arab world in the events following September 11, 2001. Arabic for “the peninsula,” Al-Jazeera has “scooped” the western media conglomerates many times. With its exclusive access to Osama Bin Laden and members of the Taliban, its reputation has been burnishing quickly through its exposure on CNN, even as it strives to maintain its independence as an international free press news network. Al-Jazeera sheds light on the background of the network: how it operates, the programs it broadcasts, its effects on Arab viewers, the reactions of the West and Arab states, the implications for the future of news broadcasting in the Middle East, and its struggle for a free press and public opinion in the Arab world.

Book News Annotation:

The complex and rapidly changing issues, reactions, and transformations caused by the Al-Jazeera network are described well by El-Nawawy (journalism, U. West Florida, Pensacola) and Iskandar (communications, U. Kentucky, Lexington). They discuss media in the Islamic world, the history of the network, the reaction to it by various Islamic countries, and its relation with the West, among other issues.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A first look at the all-Arab news network and its controversial role in the Arab world
