The second edition of the award-winning Mass-Mediated Terrorism features a new chapter on public opinion and is updated with analyses of the Iraq war, increasing terrorist attacks abroad, and subsequent counterterrorism measures. It also includes new information on Al-Jazeera and the use of the Internet in terrorist efforts. Using U.S. cases and incidents abroad, Brigitte Nacos explores the use of political violence for the sake of publicity, media coverage of counterterrorism policies and its affect on political decision making, and the impact of new media. Mass-Mediated Terrorism offers a blueprint both for effective public information and media relations during terrorism crises as well as for ethical news coverage of major terrorism incidents.

Brigitte L. Nacos is a journalist and adjunct professor of political science at Columbia University.
