Traces the roots of the watershed transformation of Arab television legitimacy.

"Pretty Liar: Television, Language, and Gender in Wartime Lebanon is an original, accessible, and welcome contribution to the scant literature on Lebanese television. . . . It is an auspicious reminder that Arab media studies has moved into a new phase, away from general introductions to the field and towards an excavation of rich and specific genealogies."—Marwan M. Kraidy, author of The Naked Blogger of Cairo: Creative Insurgency in the Arab World

"This is a fine work and will be a substantive contribution to literature on Lebanon and on media in the region."—Andrea Stanton, associate professor of Islamic studies, University of Denver

  Pretty Liar

  Natalie Khazaal is assistant professor of international studies and Arab culture at Texas A&M University. She studies the role of the media in representations of minorities, as well as the role of language and literature in generating media representations.
