The Arab media is in the midst of a revolution that will inform questions of war and peace in the Middle East, political and societal reform, and relations between the West and the Arab World. Drawing on the first broad cross-border survey of Arab journalists, first-person interviews with scores of reporters and editors, and his three decades' experience reporting from the Middle East, Laurence Pintak examines how Arab journalists see themselves and their mission at this critical time in the evolution of the Arab media. He explores how, in a diverse Arab media landscape expressing myriad opinions, journalists are still under siege as governments fight a rear-guard action to manage the message. This innovative book breaks through the stereotypes about Arab journalists to reveal the fascinating and complex reality - and what it means for the rest of us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Lawrence Pintak remains the foremost chronicler of the interaction between the Arab and Western media worlds.' - Rami Khouri, American University of Beirut and Editor-at-Large, The Daily Star (Beirut); 'This book is a unique contribution and a must read for anyone interested in media and in Arab politics.' - Amb. William A. Rugh, author of 'Arab Mass Media'; 'The real story in The New Arab Journalist is its serious attempt to grapple with one of the main stories of the age for Arabs and non-Arabs alike: the intractable overlap between Arab satellite TV as a new phenomenon and Arabness, as an ancient and diverse identity.' - Abderrahim Foukara, Washington bureau chief, Al-Jazeera; 'Finally, Arab journalists are given a chance to voice their views about their profession and their societal roles.' - Philip Seib, Director, Center on Public Diplomacy, University of Southern California
