Reviews


"The book is engaging and should be of interest to academics and general readers alike." (CHOICE, November 2009)

"The book is well-written, very informative, and engagingly convincing. Moeller develops a compelling argument on how politicians and media corporations package terrorism to attain political and economic ends. Moeller's book can resonate with various kinds of readers. In fact, many readers might find the book to be one of the best analyses of the media's coverage of terror." (International Journal of Communication, 2009)

"The best book-of the many I've read-on the 'War on Terror'. Encompassing a huge volume of research, it incorporates internationally comparative perspectives, is informative and engagingly written, and develops its arguments and evidence subtly over the long haul, so that readers tending towards the skeptical may end up being convinced of the concluding arguments." (M/C Reviews, July 2009)
