Description - Islamists in the Headlines by Talaat Pasha

In the wake of the 2011 resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, and the extraordinary protests emanating from Cairo's Tahrir Square which led to his downfall, questions about the Muslim Brotherhood and its role in society became ever more prominent. In Islamists in the Headlines, Talaat Pasha offers the first analysis of the representation of Islamists in the official newspapers in Egypt, specifically, al-Ahram. Using a critical linguistic analysis, he investigates the strategies and tools which the state utilized in order to attempt to undercut the popularity and positive image of the Muslim Brotherhood. Through Pasha's analysis, the state-run media emerges as a powerful instrument of hegemony, providing an invaluable resource for those interested in the rise, maintenance and even possible fall of authoritarian governments in the Middle East, as well as for those researching the role of the media in society.
