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 a€˜Islamophobiaa€™ and ask how we can tackle it. Charting recent media controversies, from the Archbishop of Canterburya€™s comments on Sharia law to the veil a€˜debatea€™, 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.Engage (2009)A Pocket Guide to Media and Politics, UK: Engage (http://www. iengage.org.uk/images/stories/pocketguide.pdf).
