Islam for Journalists

Islam for Journalists

By Lawrence Pintak
Book Description

This e-book presents the work of top academic experts on Islam in a form accessible to working journalists, along with essays from reporters from The New York Times, the Tennessean and various other news organizations who have covered many local stories involving Muslims in the U.S.

“Islam is now a story on Main Street USA, and just as they need the basics of business and politics, general assignment reporters these days also need to have a place they can quickly get up-to-speed on Islam if a story breaks,” said the project’s lead editor, Lawrence Pintak, a former CBS News Middle East correspondent who is now founding dean of The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University.

Former Chicago Tribune Middle East correspondent Stephen Franklin was co-editor of the project, which was funded by the Social Science Research Council, an independent, not-for-profit international organization that seeks to advance social science throughout the world, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
