5.0 out of 5 stars One of the rare unbiased recent books, 6 Sep 2011
This review is from: The New Arab Journalist: Mission and Identity in a Time of Turmoil (Library of Modern Middle East Studies) (Hardcover)
Although I read the book after January 25, 2011, I found Prof. Pintak's book very informative especially when it comes to the Egyptian journalism situation - I wrote several notes and comments on the edge of the pages saying (It is no more the case!! thanx to Jan25 revolution!).

Personally, "Chapter 4: Islam, Nationalism and the Media" was an awakening chapter. No body passed me the information Prof. Pintak did.. because of his unbiased way of presenting facts, events and analyses..

I had one comment about the cover-page (the two words written in Arabic below the title are: Terrorism and Islam) I wished if such association was avoided. Apart of that, I would like to express my deepest appreciation of the research done which results such a book!

The New Arab Journalist: Mission and Identity in a Time of Turmoil (Library of Modern Middle East Studies) is a must book to all journalists, researchers, students and all professionals who would like to understand Arab Journalism; its history and current issues. In fact, I will have to recommend the book to politicians and public diplomats working on the Middle-East and the Arab region..
