Summary: Communicating Terror: The Rhetorical Dimensions of Terrorism argues that the meaning of terrorism is socially constructed and suggests a new definition of terrorism, chiefly as a process of communication-between terrorists and multiple target audiences. Concise yet comprehensive, this up-to-date text examines how acts of ''terrorism'' create rhetorical acts: What messages, persuasive meanings, symbols, do acts of terrorism generate and communicate to the world at large? These rhetori
