Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This in-depth look at mass-mediated terrorism and political violence shows how terrorists exploit global media networks and information highways to carry news of their violence along with propaganda of the deed. From U.S. cases like 9/11, Oklahoma City, and acts of ecoterrorists, to incidents abroad like Palestinian suicide bombings in Israel, European hostages held in the Philippines, and protests at major international summits, Nacos explores the use of political violence for the sake of publicity, media coverage of counterterrorism policies and its affect on political decisionmaking, and the impact of new media. She offers a blueprint both for effective public information and media relations during terrorism crises as well as for ethical news coverage of major terrorism incidents.

Book News Annotation:

Nacos (political science, Columbia U.) examines the mass-mediated aspects of terrorism and political violence, emphasizing how suicide bombers, hostage-takers, "ecoterrorists," and others exploit global media networks and informational resources and how media sources make themselves available for such use.
