Miles, author of “Al Jazeera: The Inside Story of the Arab News Channel that is Challenging the West” has penned a detailed look into the Arab world’s most influential media outlet. Al-Jazeera is at the forefront of how the Arab world interacts and understands the rest of the world. From the book: “With unprecedented access to the news channel’s key players, reporters, producers, and financiers, journalist Hugh Miles uncovers the full, behind-the-scenes story of Al-Jazeera’s meteoric rise and how its influence is shaping the course of the Arab world. (Miles’ Book) is an eye-opening look at a television network that not only covers the news but also makes the news.” The Massachusetts School of Law, located in Andover, Massachusetts, makes high quality, affordable legal education available to less privileged persons who are traditionally excluded from the legal profession.
