In this book, Weimann and Winn deconstruct terrorism and seek to examine these acts as symbolic events, staged to attract the attention of a global audience. The book provides both an interesting and logical explanation of how the pervasive interplay of media and terrorism has developed through advancements in technology. Altough the book is somewhat dated, its findings are not exaggerated and are relevant to the current state of terrorism in both the media and political arena.
