Covering Islam

Challenges & Opportunities for Media in the Global Village
Although the media coverage of Islam is a much discussed topic, the papers of the seminar "Covering Islam" as well as the chapters of this volume attempt to discuss a number of different aspects of the problem instead of engaging in the usual revelations of Western media bias as far as reporting on Islam is concerned.

For this reason, a directory which takes stock of the status of print and broadcast media in each Asian country and lists all the major media outlets operating in this region is a welcome source.The second publication of the Media Directory by the Asia Media Programme of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is expanded to include not only the ASEAN countries as in the first edition, but also China, India, Korea and Taiwan.
