Editorial Reviews

Review

"[E]xamines the psychological effects of the U.S. government's antiterrorism measures and takes the reader a step back to look at what this campaign has come to mean….[c]hapters provide readers with discussions that view the problem from a social as well as individual perspectives….[r]ecommendations for improving emergency prepardness efforts are sound, especially their call for collaboration instead of competitiveness among mental health providers and organizations in the wake of disaster….[i]ntroductory comments and the constellation of discussions in this book's chapters serve as a clear starting point for a necessary and ongoing discussion and are as refreshing as the child's declaration that the emperor is wearing no clothes. It is good to know that, in a moment of our history when even a supposedly independent press has largely suspended its critical voice, there are still some who will call it as they see it." - PsycCRITIQUES

"Kimmel, chair of the American Psychological Association's Task Force on the Psychological Effects of Efforts to Prevent Terrorism, together with his fellow psychiatrist Stout, present research conducted by the Task Force on the psychological effects of efforts to prevent terrorism and on programs that provide alternatives to terrorism. Contributors discuss the importance of overhauling the diplomatic approach to terrorism; the ways that the US reaction to 9/11 set conditions conducive to hate crimes; the social psychology of punishing antiwar dissent; relationships between threat, ideology, and political behavior; psychological effects of media coverage of the Iraq war; the impact of US activities in Afghanistan and Iraq on terrorist motivation; public mental health; and other aspects of the War on Terror that can explored through psychological investigation." - Reference & Research Book News

"Collateral Damage: The Psychological Consequences of America's War on Terrorism goes beyond other books which focus on terrorist tactics to consider the long-term psychological impact of terrorism on this country. From the increased stereotyping of an prejudice against foreigners in general and Arabs in particular to increases in domestic hate crimes and depression, militancy and anger, Collateral Damage examines national reactions to terrorism as a whole and is essential for any in-depth college-level military or social science collection." - Midwest Book Review - California Bookwatch

Format: Hardcover
This is a book which consists of essays by academic psychology professors which portray all the bad effects that fighting against terrorist organizations which have attacked the U. S. can have on the American people. Nothing is said about these attacks because the entire focus is on the bad effects fighting such a war will have on the populace. The fact of the matter is that--quite unintentionally, I'm sure--these authors have recorded what dhimmitude looks like up close and it ain't pretty. These people's own psychology shows us just how terrorists intend their use of terror to work. Everything focuses on how wrong it is to fight terrorists, which comes down to arguing in favor of giving in to terror and instead indicting the very U. S. administration that was engaged in fighting these people. The real evil is--of course--the administration of George W. Bush, and the real perps are American citizens who refuse to be terrorized. Watch out--liberals academic and otherwise are already the the "fifth column" within this country, and this book is an excellent introduction to the kind of betrayal that the Islamist terrorists are trying to induce in America. I give the book three stars because of its usefulness in delineating the enemy of America within America.
