Reel Bad Arabs
How Hollywood Vilifies A PeopleBook - 2001
In this comprehensive study of nearly one thousand films, Shaheen documents the tendency to portray Muslim Arabs as Public Enemy #1-brutal, heartless, uncivilized Others bent on terrorizing civilized Westerners. Shaheen examines how and why such a stereotype has grown and spread in the film industry and what may be done to change Hollywood's defamation of Arabs.
