Although Al Jazeera English has yet to receive to receive the attention accorded to its Arabic language elder sibling, it is in many ways the more interesting of the two. It seeks to redefine global news coverage by focusing on areas that are traditionally neglected by most news organizations, and its potential audience is many times larger than that of the Arabic channel. This is the first book to thoroughly examine this channel’s coverage methods, effects on its audience, and its place in the world of mediated geopolitics. Paul Brighton finds that although some of the material is out-of-date, it serves as a timely reminder of the evolution of alternatives to the hegemony of the global news channels.
