"This paper reviews the book "Epic Encounters" by Melani McAlister. According to this review, "Epic Encounters" is a book that examines the specific relationship that exists between America and the Middle East since World War II, what has shaped that relationship, and how that relationship is both reflected in and shaped by media reports that certainly affect the way Americans see the world and their place in it.

From the Paper:

"The events of September 11, 2001 brought the reality of international terrorism home to Americans and also created the need to know more about the subject, about the forces contributing to terrorism, and about ways to control terrorist groups and individuals. One aspect of this desire to know has been a need to understand the way of thinking common in the Middle East, but Americans first need to know more about the Middle East than they have in the past. Americans tend to see the world reflected through their own experience and to give little attention to details about other countries."
