Rethinking Global Security: Media, Popular Culture, and the "War on Terror"
Topics range from the "Patriot Act", to the censorship of
media personalities such as Howard Stern, to the role that
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and other television
programming play as an interpretative frame for current events.
Designed to promote strategic thinking about the relationships
between media, popular culture, and global security, this book is
essential reading for scholars of international relations,
technology, and media studies.
