Summary This monograph provides a much-needed history of the Arab print media as well as an in-depth study of translated Arab media sources, remedying a remarkable gap in Western intellectual culture. Setting the scene, the manuscript begins with a brief historical narrative of Arab newspapers from the 1940s to the mid-1970s, when a free press virtually disappeared. William Haddad then explores the historiography of the Arab print media, compiling a valuable collection of available scholarship on the subject. The book simultaneously considers the contemporary ongoing problem of censorship in Middle East journalism. With this valuable context, Haddad then sets about examining the Arab print media's view of the Arab-Israeli conflict in its first three decades. By giving voice to the Arab political journalists who wrote editorials and opinion pieces, the bulk of the book explores the variety of opinions held in the Arab print media regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict.
