(Mis)Representing Islam: The racism and rhetoric of British broadsheet newspapers

 
34

This book is a study of the discursive representation of Islam and Muslims in British broadsheet newspapers, analysing the ways in which they reproduce anti-Muslim racism. While the focus here is British newspapers, given the centripetal forces of political and economic globalisation, the greater standardisation of journalistic texts and the widespread and continuing influence of Orientalist scholarship (particularly in ‘the West’), the conclusions oŸered may be useful to studies of broadsheet, or ‘quality’ newspaper reporting in other countries. There were three principal motivations for this study: First, by examining the reporting of a single identied theme within the British broadsheet press, this book lls a yawning gap in empirical literature.
