Summary
  • Focusing on British, French and Russian television news coverage of Islam as a security threat, this book provides the first comparative account of how television broadcasting in different geo- and socio-political environments integrates discourses on Islam into nationally oriented, representational systems.
  • 'This invaluable volume is a path-breaking advance in comparing how national media systems participate in European security/freedom debates.' - Nancy Condee, University of Pittsburgh, USA 'This is a first class study of Islam-related news on national television in three major European states in the early years of the twenty-first century. The authors skilfully mix political and cultural analysis to support their central arguments regarding broadcast coverage of Islam at a time of heightened public concern about the overlapping threats posed by global terrorism. Highly topical, clearly written, cogently argued and subtly weaving together national, transnational and international factors, this book is essential reading for all those who want to move beyond the stereotypical language and imagery that permeate so much of the coverage of this issue in the mediated public sphere.' - Raymond Kuhn, Queen Mary, University of London, UK 'Islam, Security and Television News represents an extensive, transnational, comparative study of television news coverage of Islam and its position within a global security discourse. The authors provide a sophisticated, measured and reflexive analysis of patterns of coverage in the UK, France and Russia using a systematic, multidisciplinary approach and incorporating wide ranging case studies. Revealing the tensions in production and representational practices that occur as a result of transnational processes interacting with the local, this book rejects polarised positions in debates on the representation of Islam and in doing so makes a significant contribution to the field of study.' - Elizabeth Poole, Staffordshire University, UK

Summary expansion
Following the end of the Cold War and recent terrorist attacks -- such as 9/11, the 2005 London Bombings or Beslan -- the presumed existence of an Islamic threat has been discussed and researched extensively. What lacks in the current literature is any substantive comparative, cross-national research on media discourse on Islam, the war on terror and national identity, particularly focusing on television news -- still the principal and most trusted source of information for most of the world's population. Focusing on British, French and Russian television news coverage of Islam as a security threat, the book synthesizes approaches from political science and cultural studies, providing the first comparative, interdisciplinary account of how television broadcasting integrates discourses on Islam into distinct, nationally oriented, representational systems. The authors assess how the transfer of Islam-related meaning across national media landscapes shapes, and is shaped by, those discourses
