The Middle East has always been a source of great power confrontations, vast religious movements, and historic "about- faces." It has also had a magnetic pull, enticing commitments and allegiances from other countries. The conflict between Israel and the Arab states has been characterized by failure to compromise, deep animosities, and drastic misperceptions that have remained, despite the passage of generations, bitter and intractable. Although this conflict is essentially a struggle between two national movements - Arab and Jewish - its impact reaches far beyond the Middle East

Media and politics( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Substantial changes have occurred in the nature of political discourse over the past thirty years. Once, traditional media dominated the political landscape, but in recent years Facebook, Twitter, blogs and Blackberrys have emerged as important tools and platforms for political campaigns. While the Canadian party system has proved surprisingly resilient, the rhythms of political life are now very different. A never-ending 24-hour news cycle has resulted in a never-ending political campaign. The implications of this new political style and its impact on political discourse are issues vigorously debated in this new volume of How Canadians Communicate, as is the question on every politician's mind: How can we draw a generation of digital natives into the current political dialogue? With contributions from such diverse figures as Elly Alboim, Richard Davis, Tom Flanagan, David Marshall, and Roger Epp, How Canadians Communicate IV is the most comprehensive review of political communication in Canada in over three decades - one that poses questions fundamental to the quality of public life."--Publisher's description
