About the Author

Joseph Braude is a Senior Fellow at the Middle East Program of the Foreign Policy Research Institute, and a Senior Fellow at the Al-Mesbar Center for Studies and Research in Dubai.


As Broadcasting Change makes clear, a hearty group of Arab liberals are determined -- notwithstanding the odds and media traditions in the Arab world -- to promote a future grounded in values of tolerance, co-existence, respect for the "other," and good governance. In this important and original book, Joseph Braude does not minimize the obstacles, but he emphasizes that liberal democracies have a stake in the success of this mission, concluding with some thoughtful recommendations on policy. Policy-makers should read Broadcasting Change, but so should anyone who cares about and yearns for a different and more hopeful future in the Middle East. -- Dennis Ross, Chief Middle East Peace Negotiator for Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton
In the Middle East, where literacy rates are low and public awareness is minimal, the influence of television and social media can be a life-and-death matter. As Joseph Braude argues in this groundbreaking book, media can play a crucial role in countering extremism, challenging entrenched ideas, and bridging distances. Braude's expertise in the Arabic language and his history of deep involvement in the Arab world make him ideally suited to investigate both the problems and the promise of this field. This valuable book should be studied by anyone with an interest in the region. -- Abdulrahman Al-Rashed, leading Saudi journalist and former General Manager of Al-Arabiya News Channel
