In recent years, considerable scholarly attention has been devoted to examining representations of Muslim and Islam in Western media, but so far the Dutch context has remained overlooked. Besides, the majority of these studies are set in the post-9/11 era and lack a historical perspective. Andrea Meuzelaar fills these research gaps by examining the history of the representation of Muslims and Islam on Dutch public television from the arrival of the first Islamic guest workers in the sixties until the recent era of the 2000s in which Islam became such a salient and contested issue and was pushed to the centre of the public debate.
