Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The authors analyze reactions to the attacks of 9/11 through the lens of terror management theory, an existential psychological model that explains why humans react the way they do to the threat of death and how this reaction influences their post-threat cognition and emotion, The theory provides ways to understand and reduce terrorism's effect and possibly find resolutions to conflicts involving terrorism.

Book News Annotation:

Pyszczynski, Solomon, and Greenberg (all: psychology—at the U. of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Skidmore College, and the U. of Arizona, respectively) apply the conceptual framework they developed to explain a superficially disparate range of reactions to the attacks of September 11, 2001. Owing a debt to the work of cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker, their Terror Management Theory posits that "human beings' highly sophisticated capabilities render us aware of the utter fragility of life and the absolute inevitability of death." This leads to a susceptibility to terror that, combined with cultural worldviews that are themselves symbolic solutions to the problem of death, lends itself to the inability of humankind to tolerate those who do not "subscribe to their death-denying cultural constructions."
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Includes bibliographical references (p. 199-215) and index.
