summary
In “Reading Arabia,” Long explores the change in the tradition of British Orientalism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He examines the role of mass print culture, including travel literature, newspapers, and silent films, in the construction of the British public’s perception of “Arabia” (a region that extended from Morocco through Syria).
