"New Media in the Muslim World is highly recommended for anthropologists, sociologists, media and cultural studies specialists. Also it is written in jargon free language that will make it easily accessible to business and communication technology experts. Students will find it an affordable journey that lead to exploring the more expensive monographs of the contributors. Eickelman and Anderson have produced a thought provoking volume that will no doubt place the study of new communications technology on the research agenda of many future scholars."--British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies, 2000 27(2)
