'This book presents a compelling structure for studying and advancing the coverage of Islam. It combines scholarly interests with a real sensitivity to the pressures facing both individual journalists and the journalism industry.'

Fred Vultee, Associate Professor of Journalism, Wayne State University, USA

'Urgent and timely, this book advances existing research on the reporting of Islam by offering solutions to its findings.'

Elizabeth Poole, Programme Director in Media, Communications and Culture, Keele University, UK

'A fine book. A pro-active book. A book that creates a new model of journalism to intervene, to challenge and to question. Working through the complex layering of otherness in journalism, alongside the pressure to summon workable narratives under time pressures, Ewart and O'Donnell create a new way of summoning evidence, developing interpretations and presenting complex ideas. This book is rare. It is practical but also high theory. It is interventionist, but never summons the subjectivity that would weaken the argument. In a time of fake news, Ewart and O'Donnell are the scholars to teach all of us to look widely and deeply for evidence, and evaluate the consequences of our choices.'

Tara Brabazon, Dean of Graduate Research and Professor of Cultural Studies, Flinders University, Australia
