Many books have been written about the press and terrorism - particularly since September 11th - but this is the first press-focused exploration of their relationship. Drawing upon the history of terrorism, mass communication research, media theory, and journalism practice, this book examines how the press reports terrorism, and how that reporting varies depending on the medium and location. Examining the differences in reporting - globally and historically within different media and government systems - Terrorism and the Press provides insights for how, in the future, we can better navigate the relationship between the press, government, and audience when terrorists attack.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Terrorism, and the coverage of it, has changed journalism. This is a status report on our craft - the good, the bad, and the ugly - and a rather unflinching look at our morphing craft and scary world." (Brian Williams, Anchor and Managing Editor, `NBC Nightly News')
"`Terrorism and the Press' is a thoughtful analysis of the issues confronting journalists who report about terrorism. Can journalists be objective observers and patriotic citizens at the same time? Journalists, policymakers, scholars, and anyone who wants to understand the complicated relationship between the press and terrorism will find a most valuable guide in this insightful book." (Newton N. Minow, Esq., Chair of the Federal Communications Commission under President John F. Kennedy; Walter Annenberg Professor Emeritus, Northwestern University)
"Not only must the news media cover terrorist acts, they must also be alert to terrorists' attempts to manipulate that coverage for their own purposes. Brooke Barnett and Amy Reynolds provide thoughtful analysis of this complex interaction. Their book will be of great value to those who study the news media and those who examine terrorism." (Philip Seib, Professor of Journalism and Public Diplomacy, University of Southern California)
