Pointing the Finger : Islam and Muslims in the British Media Paperback
Ever since 9/11, Muslims and Islam have dominated the headlines in the UK.
In this important book, several leading media commentators examine the phenomenon of `Islamophobia' and ask how we can tackle it.
Charting recent media controversies, from the Archbishop of Canterbury's comments on Sharia law to the veil `debate', the book argues that media hostility to Islam alienates Muslims and undermines efforts to combat extremism. With interviews from Muslim journalists and examples of press-fuelled myths about Islam in Britain, this is a captivating insight into how Muslims are depicted in the West.
