Exchanging Terrorism Oxygen for Media Airwaves: The Age of Terroredia
Terroredia is a newly coined term by the editor، Dr. Mahmoud Eid، to explain the phenomenal، yet under-researched relationship between terrorists and media professionals in which acts of terrorism and media coverage are exchanged، influenced، and fueled by one another.
Exchanging Terrorism Oxygen for Media Airwaves: The Age of Terroredia provides a timely and thorough discussion on a wide range of issues surrounding terrorism in relation to both traditional and new media. Comprised of insights and research from leading experts in the fields of terrorism and media studies، this publication presents various topics relating to Terroredia: understanding of terrorism and the role of the media، terrorism manifestations and media representations of terrorism، types of terrorism and media stereotypes of terrorism، terrorism tactics and media strategies، the war on terrorism، the function of terrorism and the employment of the media، new terrorism and new media، contemporary cases of terrorist-media interactions، the rationality behind terrorism and counterterrorism، as well as the responsibility of the media. This publication is of interest to government officials، media professionals، researchers، and upper-level students interested in learning more about the complex relationship between terrorism and the media.
Mahmoud Eid and his colleagues not only situate a neologism Terroredia as a key point of discussion، but also present one of the best attempts I have read to explain why we are obsessed with terrorism. The codependency brilliantly discussed by Eid reveals coherence with many of my research arguments in respect to the connection between labor organization and terrorism. --Professor Maximiliano Korstanje، University of Palermo، Argentina
