Teaching the Arab World: Evaluating Textbooks.
Jacobs, Deborah
Social Studies, v72 n4 p150-53 Jul-Aug 1981
Discusses a study of 19 junior and senior high school textbooks used in the Washington D.C. area to introduce students to the Arab World and Islam. Findings indicated that Middle Eastern culture and history were frequently measured by western standards, information was often inaccurate, the Arab-Israeli conflict often portrayed Arabs as being at fault, and Islam was often ignored.
