Review quote

[I]n its approach to globalization and localization dynamics in a very focused, careful, and situated way, this is a splendid and necessary study that . . . will ably stand at the forefront of global cultural theory and cultural studies work; it cuts across the new European Studies as well as emerging formations of Arab studies to do some innovative reflection and intervention into cultural identity and media debates . . . this is an outstanding work of serious and thorough scholarship....--Rob Wilson, University of California at Santa Cruz
