Al-Jazeera : the inside story of the Arab news channel that is challenging the West by Hugh Miles( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al-Jazeera is one of the most widely watched news channels in the world. It's also one of the most controversial. Set up by the maverick Emir of Qatar, who drew heavily on a failed BBC Arabic television project, Al-Jazeera quickly became a household name after September 11 by delivering some of the biggest scoops in television history. Financed by one of the wealthiest countries in the world, Al-Jazeera quickly established itself as the premier news channel in the Islamic world by covering events Arabs cared about in ways they had never seen before. However, accusations of ties to Al-Qaeda continue to plague the channel. With unprecedented access to key players, reporters, producers, and financiers, journalist Miles uncovers the full story of Al-Jazeera's meteoric rise and how its influence is shaping the course of the Arab world
Al-Jazeera : how Arab TV news challenged the world by Hugh Miles( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With more than fifty million viewers, Al-Jazeera is one of the most widely watched news channels in the world. And it's one of the most controversial. Set up by the maverick Emir of Qatar, Al-Jazeera ('the Island' in Arabic) quickly became a household name in the West after September 11, by delivering some of the biggest scoops in television history, including airing a taped speech from Osama bin Laden. Lambasted as a mouthpiece for Al-Qaeda, its journalists have been accused of spying for everyone from Mossad to Saddam Hussein - sometimes simultaneously. Now Hugh Miles uncovers the true story behind one of the world's most influential media outlets."--Jacket
Playing cards in Cairo by Hugh Miles( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recently installed in Cairo as a freelance journalist and expat barfly, Hugh Miles soon meets and falls in love with Roda, a beautiful Egyptian doctor, who introduces him to Egypt's favourite pastime, the card game tarneeb, to her all-female card circle, and to a previously unseen side of life in the Middle East's greatest city. While the women cut and shuffle, Miles listens to their stories and learns about what it means to be a young Muslim woman, dating, dieting and divorcing in a country where traditional Islamic values are in the ascendant. Yosra struggles with an addiction to prescription drugs; Nadia copes with a baby and an abusive husband; neighbour Reem comes to terms with plastic surgery gone wrong; while her sister attempts to conceal her secret love-marriage from her family and to breathe life into a clothes shop run by a regime apparatchik with an Islamist vision of retail. Hugh Miles takes a fascinating sideways look at the lives of young Egyptians, and finds himself on a romantic adventure that will lead him to Islam and bind him to the Arab world for ever
