Synopsis:

From the Iranian hostage crisis through the Gulf War and the bombing of the World Trade Center, the American news media have portrayed "Islam" as a monolithic entity, synonymous with terrorism and religious hysteria. In this classic work, now updated, the author of Culture and Imperialism reveals the hidden agendas and distortions of fact that underlie even the most "objective" coverage of the Islamic world.


Review:

"No one studying the relationship between the metropolitan West and the decolonized world can ignore Mr. Said's work."

Unknown, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Brilliant...Said challenges and stimulates our thinking in every area."

Unknown, Washington Post Book World
