    It sounds like this book would be so much better if it was given an update. So much has happened in the past 9 years that involves the media and Islam that updating would really benefit the field of study. I get so frustrated with the media in general in their portrayal of events, but when it comes to Islam, Muslims, and the Middle East, they are particularly bad.

      Definitely! I’m not really sure how they could properly update it, though, since Said died in 2003. 🙁

    This sounds like it would be interesting, though I would like to have something more recent at hand to read for afterword. The style doesn’t seem like it would bother me too much, as I frequently like more academic reads. Great review!
