Media and Terrorism

Global Perspectives


"This is an excellent source which puts students in the heart of the contemporary discussion and encourages them to form opinions. It is a great resource for seminars as well as gateways to research."
- Paul Matthews, University College Birmingham

"An excellent text that covers not only how the media cover acts of terrorism but also how terror groups can manipulate the media."
- David Lowe, Liverpool John Moores University

"The fact that the term 'terror' lends itself to such elastic uses makes writing about it rather challenging, especially when the discussion is focused on this very elasticity and elusiveness. This book engages directly with this challenge, seeking to explore the uses and abuses of this elusive concept... [It] is a feast of penetrating insights and provocative ideas: densely informative and a pleasure to read, covering as it does the subject from multiple angles and in great depth."
- Abdelwahab El-Affendi
, University of Westminster

Have the media contributed to exacerbating the political, cultural and religious divides within Western societies and the world at large? How can media be deployed to enrich, not inhibit, dialogue? To what extent has the media, in all its forms, questioned, celebrated or simply accepted the unleashing of a 'war on terror'?

Media and Terrorism: Global Perspectives
brings together leading scholars to explore how the world's media have influenced, and in turn, been influenced by terrorism and the war on terror in the aftermath of 9/11. Accessible and user-friendly with lively and current case studies, it is an essential handbook on the dynamics of war and the media in a global context.
