This timely work discusses the role of Arab transnational media in the emergence of a new pan-Arabism. McArabism, the author suggests, represents the convergence of local tribal identities with globalization and the forming, or reforming, of a new regional Arab identity. The book explores the emergence of McArabism and its impact on Arab society, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and new representations of the West and the Islamic and Arab World.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With the recent launching of Al Jazeera English, this network is now in a position to offer viewers worldwide an alternative source of information and commentary in an environment that has not traditionally been receptive to independent media. Rinnawi (College of Management, Tel Aviv) provides not only an excellent examination of the Al Jazeera phenomenon, but also a much-needed analysis of the existing satellite broadcast media in the Arab world. The author demonstrates how the media has impacted politics and identities in the Arab world. He also examines how the various Arab governments attempt to regulate transnational media. Summing Up: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates through faculty. -- N. Entessar * CHOICE *
