About this title


The New Arab Media: Technology, Image and Perception is a valuable introduction and analysis of some of the most important issues surrounding the new media revolution in the Middle East. In particular, the book examines the two Janus-like faces of the new media in the Middle East: its role in reflecting developments within the region, as well as its function in projecting the Arab world outside of the Middle East. The topics examined include: the impact of Al-Jazeera * implementation of the internet in the region * the use of the media for diplomacy and propaganda * image culture * the use of the internet by religious diasporas * information and communication technologies and the Arab Public Sphere * the influence of satellite television on Arab public opinion * the explosion of local radio stations in Jordan.

About the Author:

Mahjoob Zweiri is an Assistant Professor in Modern History of the Middle East and Central Asia at the College of Arts and Sciences at Qatar University. He was until recently senior researcher in Middle East Politics and Iran at the Center for Strategic Studies (CSS) at the University of Jordan. He is the author of numerous peer-reviewed papers, and is the co-author (with A. Ehteshami) of two books, Iran and the Rise of Its Neoconservatives: The Politics of Tehran's Silent Revolution (I.B. Tauris, 2007) and Iran's Foreign Policy: From Khatami to Ahmadinejad (Ithaca Press, 2008). Emma C. Murphy is Professor of Political Economy in the School of Government and International Affairs, University of Durham. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, and a co-editor of the journal Mediterranean Politics. Her interests in the Arab media stem from the political economy of information and communication technology and she has published articles on this subject in journals such as Third World Quarterly and International Studies Quarterly. Her monographs include Economic and Political Change in Tunisia: From Bourguiba to Ben Ali (Palgrave, 1999) and (co-authored with Clive Jones) Israel: Challenges to Identity, Democracy and the State (Routledge, 2002).
