Instant nationalism; McArabism, al-Jazeera and transnational media in the Arab world.

Rinnawi, Khalil.

Univ. Press of America


196 pages




The advent of a new media landscape in the Arab world, a landscape that includes the Internet, the transnational satellite news station Al Jazeera, and other challenges to the old state-run monopolistic medias, is described by Rinnawi (behavioral science, College of Management in Tel-Aviv, Israel) as a "major seismic movement" prompting a resurgence in pan-Arabism. In this book, he analyzes these developments and assesses their likely social and political implications.
