Reel Bad Arabs

Fully revised and updated, here is an intelligent ground-breaking volume that examines Hollywood's negative portrayal of Muslim Arabs. First published in 2001, this landmark volume lays out and dissects a defamatory history dating from cinema's pioneering days to contemporary Hollywood blockbusters perpetuating the vision of Kalashnikov-wielding, bomb-making, malevolent Arabs. Fully revised and updated, "Reel Bad Arabs" is a comprehensive study of more than 1,000 films - including over 100 released since 2001 - that documents the tendency of Hollywood to portray Muslim Arabs as brutal, heartless, uncivilized infidels bent on terrorizing civilized Westerners. It goes on to examine how and why such a stereotype has managed to grow and spread in the film industry, and what can be done to change Hollywood's continuing slur on the Arab nation.
