Summary
  • "After September 11, many in the American public and media zeroed in on Muslims in America and the world, irresponsibly linking -- intentionally or not -- Muslims at large with terrorism. This well-researched book explores this focus and its implications. At the same time, the authors do not leave out the opinions of Muslim Americans, exploring their views about the American media and its influence, their attitudes toward non-Muslim Americans and, just as important, their opinions on post-9/11 U.S. counterterrorist policies and practices
  • This book not only serves students and scholars in the fields of Middle East studies, media studies, and international communication but is also an enlightening read for anyone interested in mainstream America's perception of Muslims"--BOOK JACKET
