Reporting Islam: Media Representations of British Muslims
It is a widely held view that since the end of the Cold War attention has focused on Islam as a central force of disruption within a New World Order. No event has heightened this more than the assault on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, and the reporting of these terrorist attacks. Reporting Islam is a timely contribution to this debate which looks at the ways in which Muslims are represented in the British news media. Elizabeth Poole examines the claim that Muslims are universally demonized in the British press and comes to some illuminating conclusions. Reporting Islam is of great value to students of media, cultural studies, Islamic studies and politics.
