Editorial Reviews


«This important new book by pioneering media sociologist David Altheide continues his highly original and courageous work on media logic and the contemporary communications environment, showing how they have expanded the idea of ‘terror’ in many directions, and fuelled a deadly politics, most recently in Gaza. Very strongly recommended.» (Aaron Doyle, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Carleton University, Ottawa)
«David Altheide applies his expertise in media and communications to study the role of terror in the post-9/11 world. Altheide argues that media logic has normalized terror and promoted a politics of fear that enable politicians to exploit fear of terrorism. At the same time, terrorism and fear of terror comes to penetrate and structure the media and our view of the world. This is a timely study that should be of interest to all concerned with contemporary media and politics.» (Douglas Kellner, Professor at UCLA and author of ‘Guys and Guns Amok: Domestic Terrorism and School Shootings from the Oklahoma City Bombings to the Virginia Tech Massacre’)
