Synopsis

This book examines the fear of terrorism and its impact on community well being and public perception of government counter terrorism strategies. The author's discussion of the audience and their role in encoding/decoding raises questions about the relationship between the audience and the media in an era of new technologies. This book is an important addition to an emergent field of inquiry that traverses the fields of media studies and terrorism studies. This work is a methodical study of the nature of fear pervading Australian audiences since the precipitous events of 11 September 2001 in the United States of America. The work takes an in-depth look at the roles of the media and the audience in constructing and promulgating the fear of terrorism among Australians. The author applies contemporary theories from several disciplines to present the reader with an analysis of the relationship between media audiences and media texts in a social and political context where terrorism is constructed as an imminent threat and where Muslims represent the very personification of that threat.

It offers scholars of media, politics, social sciences, terrorism and psychology a useful resource for developing an understanding of the contemporary context in which terrorism, terror and fear have pervaded much of our understanding of world affairs.
