"As the world contemplates the consequences of a global 'war on terror' that often positions predominantly Judeo-Christian Western societies against their Muslim counterparts, and as social and mass media bring to our collective consciousness horrific murders committed by terrorists purporting to act in the name of Islam, Re-Imagining the Other: Culture, Media, and Western-Muslim Intersections (2014) is a timely and welcome intellectual intervention. [...] [F]eaturing a collection of thought-provoking chapters written by well-known critical scholars, the book is informed by the position that a 'clash of ignorance' rather than a 'clash of civilizations' thesis better explains contemporary conflicts between Western and Muslim societies, which increasingly find expression in violence and social exclusion. [...] [This volume] speaks eloquently to the deep structure of the clash of ignorance and its ramifications for Western-Muslim relations; that is its strength and why it is a must-read. [...] [It] makes a significant contribution to critical scholarship on Western-Muslim relations, especially how mass mediatized narrative (re)productions inform these relations. Accordingly, this book is strongly recommended especially for graduate and senior undergraduate critical media studies courses" Felix Odartey-Wellington, University of Ottawa, Canada, Global Media Journal, Canadian Edition
