Screens of Influence

screens of influence cover design front onlySCREENS OF INFLUENCE: Arab Satellite Television & Social Development – case studies in poverty, literacy and violence in underprivileged Saudi women.

This book sets out a remarkable and brave piece of research into how Arab satellite television has been used in an attempt to support development goals – particularly in relation to women experiencing poverty, violence and a lack of education. The author spent months living in a remote, poor, rural community in Saudi Arabia to better understand television viewing habits and crucially to witness the social issues faced by the women and girls she met. She usefully presents these case studies in the context of Arab and Saudi identity; the story of satellite television in the Arab world; and with an insight into the meaning of “development” in the wider area. This book is a must for anyone wanting to understand an Arab media landscape or working in development in the region.
