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.
