Abstract

This volume offers the best available thinking and analysis on the topic of the rhetoric and communication of terrorism. Each of the chapters isolates a particular issue or concern and exposes the difficult choices and subsequent processes facing participants in the management of terrorism. By wrapping the analysis in a web of communication and rhetorical processes and theories, the authors develop unique perspectives from which to characterize these contexts. This volume is intended for multiple audiences, including those interested not only in the specific topic but in risk communication, crisis management, policy management and political science.
