How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Fully Revised Edition)
From the Iranian hostage crisis through the Gulf War and the World Trade Centre bombing, the West has been haunted by a spectre called 'Islam'. As portrayed by the news media - and by a chorus of government, academic and corporate experts - 'Islam' is synonymous with terrorism and religious hysteria. At the same time, Islamic countries use Islam to justify unrepresentative and often oppressive regimes.
- Лиска, ляг на ноги да погрей их, ляг! - стучат холода зубами, проворчал нищий, стараясь подобрать под себя ноги, обутые в опорки и обернутые тряпками. Лиска, небольшая желтая культяпая дворняжка, ласково виляя пушистым хвостом и улыбаясь во весь свой ротик с рядом белых зубов, поднялась со снега и легла на закорузлые ноги нищего.
In this landmark work, for which he has written a new introduction, one of our foremost public thinkers examines the origins and repercussions of the media's monolithic images of Islam. Combining political commentary with literary criticism, Edward Said reveals the hidden assumptions and distortions of fact that underlie even the most 'objective' coverage of the Islamic world.
