More Information

While new technologies emerge, such as Arab satellite television and blogging, censorship is adapting to control output, albeit with limited success. Jihadist and dissident websites, as well as TV channels owned and run by political groups such as Hizbullah proliferate and the Arab ‘media wars’ continue to mirror conflicts on the ground.

The essays in this collection provide an up-to-date analysis of the Arab media sphere as well as its reflection and response in Western media.
