Review "In this comprehensive study of over one thousand films, award-winning film authority Jack G. Shaheen documents the tendency to portray Muslim Arabs as Public Enemy #1 - brutal, heartless, uncivilized "Others" bent on terrorizing civilized Westerners. He examines how and why such a stereotype has grown and spread in the film Industry and what should be done to change Hollywood's defamation of Arabs"--P. [4] of cover
