Bringing together fifteen classic essays by prominent scholars in a variety of fields, including history, international relations, communications, American studies, film studies, anthropology, political science, and cultural studies, terrorism, media, Liberation explores the relationship between violent political actions and the technological media that present and frame them for mass audiences. This volume complement readings in upper-level mass communications courses and will appeal to scholars of international media and terrorism.
