Produktbeschreibung
Complementing and extending scholarship in three areas - terrorism; the media, mediated representations, and propaganda in contemporary culture; and the political and diplomatic environment post-9/11 - this book articulates the role of human communication in the "war of ideas". Drawing on contemporary research from a variety of disciplines, this book offers analyses and recommendations for people to make use of informed, inspired, and ethical communication to counter ideological support for terrorism and to promote more effective public diplomacy. This is the first book to apply human communication concepts and theories - and to offer potential solutions - to the communication problems encountered by nations, communities, and individuals, and in doing so moves beyond critiques of failed U.S. communication campaigns and strategies in the "war on terror".

Rezensionen
"A virtual dissection of America's troubled 'information strategy' since 9/11. [This book is] full of trenchant analysis that explains what went wrong, yet replete with practical recommendations for repairing damaged credibility and focusing on the right 'story.' Mandatory reading for all who conduct public diplomacy, those who study it, and those who feel its pervasive effects." (John Arquilla, Director, Information Operations Center, United States Naval Postgraduate School)
"Beyond the incisive analysis of America's strategic communication challenges and the hard-hitting policy recommendations for crafting an effective way forward, the authors open the terrorism studies discipline to a virtually untapped literature, that of communication theory. This book is a must-read for practitioners, scholars, and students of global politics and counterterrorism." (Jarret Brachman, Director of Research, Combating Terrorism Center, United States Military Academy)
