Overview

What is the Arabic term for "suicide bombing"? What phrase would be used to describe "peacekeeping forces" in the Arab media? Or "economic sanctions"?

In light of recent developments in the Middle East, it is essential that scholars, journalists, government workers, military personnel, businesspeople, and diplomats familiarize themselves quickly with Arabic/English translations for many of these key words and phrases. Media Arabic — the language of printed or broadcast news items — emphasizes contemporary terms like multiculturalism or globalization that are not covered by most Arabic dictionaries.

This concise and accessible volume provides easy-to-learn lists of the most relevant vocabulary, providing key terms for translating from and into Arabic. Organized by topic, these word lists furnish the reader with an invaluable knowledge of key vocabulary to comprehend, translate, write, and speak Arabic.

Topics include:o General (reports, statements, sources, common media idioms)o Politicso Electionso Militaryo Economicso Trade & Industryo Law & Ordero Disaster & Aid

With access to the most contemporary media vocabulary, guesswork disappears and students and professionals can begin to discuss and understand the most recent developments in the Arab news media.

    Handy, but overpriced.

    This book does have a lot of handy words and phrases that are used in newscasts, but is more of a list than a dictionary. It's organized by subject, but within that, the words are listed in random order. It's not worth the listed price, but if you can pick it up cheaper, go for it.

    The ideal tool for advanced Arabic students

    For those interested in actually learning modern standard Arabic and not just passing the class, this is a must. It lists words and phrases that recur on the news such as "prime minister" and "car bomb." This book is indeed one of the best investments you can make towards your Arabic studies if this language is crucial to your career. It has given me the edge above other students in a very intense Arabic course.
    The only flaw I would point out at all is that the words are separated by subject they aren't sub-categorized by subject, but by type--verb, noun, etc.
