Brigitte L. Nacos is adjunct professor of political science at Columbia University.
It is a disturbing truth that a detailed analysis of the terrorism phenomenon, first published in 2002, requires major updates a scant five years later. The new challenges reported by Brigitte Nacos are huge. New media have enhanced the power of terrorists to instill fear and recruit followers. To cope with the evolving dangers, citizens and their leaders need to be aware of these developments. Mass-Mediated Terrorism provides the necessary insights. -- Doris A.
