Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"What makes Arab Media a particularly engaging book is the fact that it does not shy away from placing Arab social and cultural politics at the heart of discussions on technology and its uses ... It is accessible, focused and presents engaging arguments on a range of crucial topics."
New Formations

"Provides an in-depth, comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of all forms of Arab media in light of the current technological, political and socio-economic leaps that are being witnessed in the globalization era. A highly needed contribution and a great read for media scholars and students."
Mohammed el-Nawawy, Queens University of Charlotte

"Offers a useful overview of an array of media channels in the Arabic-speaking world. Authored by leading scholars in the field, the book discusses the trials and tribulations of the Arab media, their role in state-building, regional inter-state rivalries, social change and counter-hegemony. It will be of great interest to regional specialists and others from a variety of inter-disciplinary backgrounds."
Yasir Suleiman, Cambridge University
