Editorial Reviews

Review

«A virtual dissection of America’s troubled ‘information strategy’ since 9/11. [This book is] full of trenchant analysis that explains what went wrong, yet replete with practical recommendations for repairing damaged credibility and focusing on the right ‘story.’ Mandatory reading for all who conduct public diplomacy, those who study it, and those who feel its pervasive effects.» (John Arquilla, Director, Information Operations Center, United States Naval Postgraduate School)
«Beyond the incisive analysis of America’s strategic communication challenges and the hard-hitting policy recommendations for crafting an effective way forward, the authors open the terrorism studies discipline to a virtually untapped literature, that of communication theory. This book is a must-read for practitioners, scholars, and students of global politics and counterterrorism.» (Jarret Brachman, Director of Research, Combating Terrorism Center, United States Military Academy)

By Michael Stohl on July 1, 2008
Corman, Trethewey and Goodall have assembled a first rate collection of nine short essays which examine the need for a US counterterrorism strategic communication policy. Unlike many edited volumes, the nine chapters (which include seven chapters in which one or more of the editors are co-authors) are very well integrated. The authors identify the failed assumptions and communication strategies that have characterized the Bush administration and follow up the critiques with case studies which demonstrate the consequences of these misunderstandings. Throughout they make the case for understanding the multiple audiences that must be considered in the contemporary global environment and the implications of not doing so. Finally, they conclude with suggestions for the incorporation of contemporary communication theory and offer a sensible approach for rethinking the current US approach to strategic communication practice. A must read for policy makers and scholars interested in terrorism, counterterrorism and the contested global audience.
