SHAHEEN, JACK G.
Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies A People. Foreword by William Greider
Brooklyn, NY, Olive Branch Press. 2001. (ISBN: 1566563887) Soft cover. Book, First Edition. viii, 574pp, Foreword, Introduction, Reviewed Films A-Z, Notes, 10 appendices, index of Films. 8vo/23cm. Paper, ex-library--other than the library markings the book has no defects and is clean, tight and very good. Basically the first comprehensive review of Arab films ever published, more than 900 of them going back to 1905. They are reviewed for their spoken or visual anti-Arab stereotypical images. From the evidence the author has amassed, it looks to be an overwhelming indictment of Hollywood treatment of the subject. In essence he says, the word "Arab" has remained Hollywood's shorthand for 'bad guy'. And it is not inconceivable that some of the American soldiers who have perpetrated the abuse of Arab prisoners in Abu Graib and Guantanamo as well as in other places and circumstances have been affected in their earlier lives by such images. Jack G. Shaheen (1935- ), an Arab himself, is Professor Emeritus of Mass Communications at Southern Illinois University and the author of Arab and Muslim Stereotyping in American Popular Culture, and other associated works. Fine.
