Coping with Anxiety in An Age of Terrorism

Terrorism. It is a tragically informing reality of our times. As poet W. H. Auden characterized a different era The Age of Anxiety، so ours is The Age of Terrorism. Urban-transit systems post signs if you see something، say something. The warning appears in several languages. Yet، paradoxically، there is as yet no known profile of a terrorist. This reassuring book is directed at two audiences: the hypervigilant public that ever anticipates the next random terrorist incident and professionals toward whom the public turns for support following such events. The message، from an expert on life-stress and violence، is sobering: Once the immediate danger has passed، it is necessary to make our understandable anxiety more tolerable so that we are not overcome by our fears of such terrorist events. This book shows how.

Editorial Reviews

An impressive array of sociological studies and crime statistics to support the contention that violence has become a major public-health problem of epidemic proportion. --Publishers Weekly

"Impressively informed and informative، thoroughly 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation، Coping with Anxiety in An Age of Terrorism is an extraordinary and urgently recommended addition to both community and academic library collections.

It is now common place in Europe and North America to see urban-transit systems post signs "if you see something، say something." The warning appears in several languages. Yet، paradoxically، there is as yet no known profile of a terrorist.

The message، from this expert on life-stress and violence is sobering and timely: Once the immediate danger has passed، it is necessary to make our understandable anxiety more tolerable so that we are not overcome by our fears of such terrorist events.
