5.0 von 5 Sternen A useful book for the obtainment of objectivity in the media
Prof. Said's book is one that gets through the marrow of hackneyed, obtuse, sterotypical untruths that the media unfortunatelly often places on individuals of Arab decent. His work delves deeply into how pseudo-intellectual Hollywood and the'yellow' media often brand (most of the time) people of Middle East culture as the 'bad guy' or the one who 'must have planted...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
Prof. Said's book is one that gets through the marrow of hackneyed, obtuse, sterotypical untruths that the media unfortunatelly often places on individuals of Arab decent. His work delves deeply into how pseudo-intellectual Hollywood and the'yellow' media often brand (most of the time) people of Middle East culture as the 'bad guy' or the one who 'must have planted the bomb,' etc... Covering Islam is a great book, not just in its clear-cut shining examples of how people often unconsciencely discriminate, but also in its well researched scholarship. Mr. Said explains and points out the subtleties of what is being taught in schools today, what is on the radio, television and movie screens. His fluid writing style and insights, I believe, will help people to become less subservient to the ideas and opinions expressed by the 'still-learning' media.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a brilliantly incisive work, 30. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
I have read much on Middle Eastern history and politics, particularly covering Iran, but in this work Said maps the convergence of media, politics, and racism with his unparalled intellectual rigor. It's been seventeen years since this book was first published, and we've yet to see fair, if not compassionate, reportage on the Middle East and Islam. I venture to guess Said's observations here will remain vital and provocative for many, many more years to come.

5.0 von 5 Sternen CALLING ALL JOURNALISTS..., 21. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
This book should be read by all journalists who write anything about Islam and Muslims, and everyone who reads the foreign news section of the newspaper. Succinct, powerful, and poignant, Said, himself not a Muslim, exhibits his customary insight as he attempts to destroy the horrific portrayal of the world's fastest growing and second-largest religion by the American media.
New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post--stop publishing this trash about Islam that you call journalism and feeding the entertainment craze that evokes memories of Rambo-esque American bravery against fanatics, terrorists, and extremists. Life is not an action movie with a good guy and a bad guy, like you would want the American public to believe.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get past the excessively simplistic, racist, anti-Muslim, anti-Islam, and anti-Arab (and thereby, anti-Semitic as well--no, Jews aren't the only, or even the most numerous Semites, Arabs are Semites, too...) views so completely represented by the American media.
My advice to those who want to learn about the Middle East, Islam, and Muslims in general--DON'T believe what you read in newspapers or in books by journalists (they represent a tiny fraction of what's actually going on those parts of the world, and even that is pseudo-intellectual rubbish). Read bona fide history books that have various viewpoints--American and non-American, Muslim and non-Muslim. And if you do happen to read the newspapers, keep a copy of Said's book next to you to help you expose the media's constant distortions.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Inquiry Into the Origins of "NIGHTLINE", 2. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
Edward Said has long been one of my favorite authors when it comes to commenting on the difference between perception and reality, especially vis-a-vis the "Western world" and the Middle East. I read "Covering Islam" after "Culture and Imperialism," and it was refreshing to see Said apply his conclusions from his literary criticism to modern journalism and pop culture. His analysis of how NIGHTLINE became a hit due to the 1979-80 Tehran hostage crisis was particularly illuminating. As anybody who's ever seen any American movie dealing with the Middle East or terrorists, the attitudes Said describes in his book are still very much with us today. I give this book four stars simply because I would like to see it updated in the aftermath of the growth of domestic American terrorism (Oklahoma City, Operation Rescue and its more zealous advocates, and even Columbine) and how those developments cannot be easily dismissed by blaming them on common Arab (or Iranian) stereotypes. This book is a prime example of cultural studies at their best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AN EXCELLENT BOOK -> UNCOVERING HIDDEN AGENDAS, 19. August 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
FINALLY!! NOW HERE'S A BOOK THAT PORTRAYS THE TRUTH...I recommend this book to anyone who has ever felt the media's portrayal of Islam and Muslims was anywhere near reality. This book takes on the long-feared task of exposing American media agendas and its sources, and how this portrayal has hurt and been totally unfair to the Second Largest Religion in the World where more than a billion Muslims live and practice a religion that has become the target of media distortion and the tool for American foreign policy and hidden agendas. An expose' of multibillion dollar campaigns to distort the image of a civilized, down-to-earth, honest religion, this book gives the real scoop on the high moral values of Muslim people, and their sincerety, and the media's distortion of them as terrorists and war-criminals.A must read for all political analysts

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent insightful book! A must read!!!, 4. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
This book examines in great detail the rather systematic method by which experts, scholars and media personalities examine Islam, Arabs, and Muslims in general. The impact of these misrepresentations lead to tragedies and conflicts throughout the world. Further antagonistic posturing by either camps (as ill-defined as they might be) can only lead to extended conflict. If you are interested in Islam, Muslims or Arabs, and their relationship with the West, this book is a must read!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Possibly the best book on media and foreign policy, 6. Mai 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
A MUST read for anyone who believes himself to be a journalist, historian, political commentator, public official or policy-maker. Edward, writing in his own detached, scholarly style, exposes the blinkered views and "expert opinion" mainstream media and politicians propagate for their own self-interest and to humanity's disadvantage. An interesting and necessary perspective to everyone who believes in the First Amendment

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
Freue mich darauf es zu lesen, ist sicher nichts für jedermann, aber wer sich das Buch bestellt, weiß auch, dass er es bei Said mit einem Medienkulturkritiker zu tun hat.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Covering Islam: How the Media and the Experts Determine How We See the Rest of the World (Taschenbuch)
Said exposes the American journalists' laziness and disqualifications to cope up with the developments of the Islamic world and their subsequent readiness to blame the third party for when anything goes wrong. Having lived in the US for sometime now, I am blissfully aware of the pathetic [lack of] knowledge that Americans have of the world current affairs and world history. Said has done an excellent job in proving that this ignorance is not only confined to the masses but also extends to the American journalists. A must read for anyone who wants to know the world outside of the US.
