9781845113278: Arab Media and Political Renewal: Community, Legitimacy and Public Life (Library of Modern Middle East Studies)

People are on the move across the Arab world, organizing politically in new ways. The Arab media have also undergone a transformation and are still in a state of flux. It is therefore crucial to be able to discuss political initiatives in the region in the light of media developments.  This authoritative book answers key questions about the connections between media and political change in the Arab world.  Using research into, for example, practices of Internet users, journalists, demonstrators and producers of reality TV, it explores the interface between public interaction over the airwaves, at the polls and on the streets. A lively group of contributors explores such issues as whether young people are served well by new media, whether blogging is an influential political tool, whether satellite news helps or hinders diasporic communities politically, and much more.  Engaging with debates at the heart of public affairs and popular culture in Arab countries, this book addresses everyone who seeks to grasp the media politics of this central, often misunderstood region.

About the Author:

Naomi Sakr is Senior Lecturer in Communication, School of Media, Arts and Design, University of Westminster.  Her books, prize-winning Satellite Realms: Transnational Television, Globalization and the Middle East, and the edited collection Women and Media in the Middle East: Power through Self-Expression, were both published by Tauris.

Review:

Sakr’s latest edited volume explores the transformations of Arab media and Arab politics, and the complicated relationships between these two constantly shifting landscapes. The contributors offer readers a nuanced, complex, and contradictory approach to a vibrant media-politics - Helga Tawil-Souri, Particip@tions
