Voices of the New Arab Public
AIRED:
Voices of the New Arab Public: Iraq, Al-Jazeera, and Middle East Politics TodayAl-Jazeera and other Arab satellite television stations have transformed Arab politics over the last decade. Shattering state control over information and giving a platform to long-stifled voices, these new Arab media have challenged the stagnant status quo by encouraging open debate about Iraq, Palestine, Islamism, and other vital political issues. These public arguments have redefined what it means to be Arab and reshaped the realm of political possibility in the Middle East. In his new book, Marc Lynch draws on interviews conducted in the Middle East and analyses of satellite television programs, newspapers, and public opinion polls to examine the nature and influence of the new Arab public sphere. Dr. Lynch traces the evolution of Arab public opinion in the 1990s and in the war in Iraq, and shows how it will continue to shape the future of the Middle East.moreless
