Global Terrorism and New Media carefully examines the content of terrorist websites and extremist television programming to provide a comprehensive look at how terrorist groups use new media today.

Based partly on a content analysis of discussion boards and forums, the authors share their findings on how terrorism 1.0 is migrating to 2.0 where the interactive nature of new media is used to build virtual organization and community. Although the creative use of social networking tools such as Facebook may advance the reach of terrorist groups, the impact of their use of new media remains uncertain. The book pays particular attention to terrorist media efforts directed at women and children, which are evidence of the long-term strategy that some terrorist organizations have adopted, and the relationship between terrorists’ media presence and actual terrorist activity. This volume also looks at the future of terrorism online and analyzes lessons learned from counterterrorism strategies.

This book will be of much interest to students of terrorism studies, media and communication studies, security studies and political science.

Review:

'This book is highly recommended for students of terrorism and those who wish to expand their knowledge of publicly available extremist thought and possible solutions to its propagation.' - Maj. Charles Jack, Centre of Excellence Defence Against Terrorism Newsletter, April-May-June 2012

'Philip Seib and Dana Janbek dissect the most dramatically changed environmental feature that today’s terrorists exploit for propaganda, recruitment, information, and the expansion of their international reach: the new global media and communication systems and how they have shaped the communication strategies of terrorist organizations, most of all Al Qaeda and like-minded groups. While an essential resource for students of terrorism and counterterrorism, the book is accessible for general readers as well. I recommend it highly.' - Brigitte Nacos, Columbia University

'This book is a must-read for scholars and students of terrorism and counterterrorism studies, media and communication studies, as well as military and government officials who have the responsibility of keeping their country safe from terrorists.' - Terrorism and Political Violence, 23(2)

'Global Terrorism and New Media is a fascinating read and of benefit to anyone involved in terror prevention, security studies, or political science.' - Ben Rothke, Security Management

'The strength of this book lies in its thorough analysis, description, and examples to support its claims. The authors do an excellent job of providing a "no non-sense" interpretation of the concept of contemporary terrorism [...] This book is a must read for scholars and students of terrorism and counterterrorism studies, media and communication studies, as well as military and government officials who have the responsibility of keeping their country safe from terrorists.' - Terrorism and Political Violence, Volume 23, Issue 2 April 2011 , 314

'Global Terrorism and New Media is a fascinating read and of benefit to anyone involved in terror prevention, security studies, or political science.' - Ben Rothke, Security Management online

"A comprehensive account of how terrorist groups use the Internet’s new media by examining the content of their websites, including their extremist television programs." - Joshua Sinai, ‘Terrorism Bookshelf: Top 150 Books on Terrorism and Counterterrorism’, Perspectives on Terrorism, Vol. 6, No. 2 (2012)
