Martin: Essentials of Terrorism, Second Edition Captivating, concise, and accessible, this Second Edition of Gus Martin's popular text offers new data, new case studies, and new photos, as well more coverage of homeland security. Contemporary topics, including gender-selective terrorism, the Internet and terrorism, religious terrorism, and media coverage of terrorism issues and related ethical issues, are addressed throughout the book. Unique maps and dramatic photos show readers the locations of major terrorist activities and the devastation they've caused. Communicating Terror, Second Edition Concise, succinct, and provocative, this text explores multiple rhetorical dimensions of terrorism, connects terrorism to communication theories, and helps readers understand how this violence creates a public discourse for multiple target audiences. Author Joseph S. Tuman uses fascinating case studies and examples as he explores both dissent terrorism and state terror and looks at terrorism from a communicative perspective. Presenting terrorism as a process of communication between terrorists and multiple audiences, this book examines a range of rhetorical components, including definitions and labels, symbolism in terrorism, the relationship between terror and the media, and public oratory about terrorism-by both victims of terrorism and terrorists themselves.
