Ebook description:

A riveting and sobering investigation into Australia’s race drawback and the way our media demonises Arabs and Muslims. Since 9/11 the Australian media has been stuffed with unhealthy information tales. Gang rapes in Sydney, asylum seekers, the Tampa federal election, the battle in Afghanistan, the primary 12 months of the Palestinian intifada, the Cronulla riots – all hit the headlines regularly. One issue ran by all of those: Arabs and Muslims. After the horrible anti-Muslim feeling after 9/11, Manning had the stunning realization that he hadn’t pretty portrayed Muslims within the media, and had even used Australia’s worry of Islam to promote tales. His response to the media firestorm about one ethnicity and one faith was to arrange a fully-refereed educational research on how each had been portrayed in two newspapers – Sydney’s two main dailies – within the 12 months earlier than and the 12 months after September 11, 2001. The outcomes horrified him, and he got down to redress the steadiness any manner he may. Now Professor of Media Research on the College of Know-how, he launched himself into an undergraduate diploma in Arabic research, and immersed himself within the Arab world. His subsequent journey to the Center East was among the best times of his life. Us and Them is an try by a revered journalist and media commentator to deal with the general public, government-led and media-driven hysteria concerning the group of Australians now often known as ‘folks of Center Japanese look’. A mixture of memoir, journey, tradition, historical past and faith, Us and Them tells the story of 1 man’s passionate quest to see justice accomplished: to humanise relatively than demonise the folks our media – and us – are likely to get so mistaken
