Product Description

From the Author

This is the first comparative study on the way cinema
represents politics in the Middle East. I have encountered a few studies on
the stereotyping of Arabs in the Western media, but I'm frustrated with
this focus on Arab victimization, and have written this book to present an
alternative way of thinking about representation. How do Arabs represent
themselves and Others (for they have their own Other too)? And what purpose
does representation--whether in Hollywood or in Arab cinemas--serve? I hope
my book fills this gap in knowledge, and broadens the scope of thinking
about the role played by cinema in world politics. I also hope it takes us
beyond focusing on difference and the concept of an essential East/West
divide.

Filming the Modern Middle East: Politics in the Cinemas of Hollywood and the Arab World is not only incredibly interesting but very informative. Great insight and fascinating look at how Hollywood relates to the Middle East, and vice versa.
