This 2009 work has some excellent insights into why secular journalists miss the religious foundations to many of the world's most important stories and events. The introductory section and second chapter on Al Qaeda by Paul Marshall are top notch. He offers some very helpful information about the radical Muslim world that have been glossed over my multiculturalists. The case studies are generally quite good as well, though they suffer from the variability of quality common to all anthologies. For any budding journalist or individual hoping to understand the media and their limitations, this is a good book to read/have.
