Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"It is difficult to imagine a more thoughtful, balanced, or comprehensive treatment of this extremely elusive and difficult subject." --Digest of Middle East Studies

This second edition of a widely acclaimed collection of essays reports on how new media--fax machines, satellite television, and the Internet--and the new uses of older media--cassettes, pulp fiction, the cinema, the telephone, and the press--shape belief, authority, and community in the Muslim world. The chapters in this work, including new chapters dealing specifically with events after September 11, 2001, concern Indonesia, Bangladesh, Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, the Arabian Peninsula, and Muslim communities in the United States and elsewhere. The extent to which today's new media have transcended local and state frontiers and have reshaped understandings of gender, authority, social justice, identities, and politics in Muslim societies emerges from this timely and provocative book.
