The introduction provides an overview to the book, its central focus and argument, and the overall structure and organisation of each chapter. To help situate the book and justify its focus, the introduction also poses a number of important questions, such as ‘what is al-Qaeda’, ‘why study the BBC’s “News at Ten’s” representations’.
