[ecrea] New book: Screens of Terror

Thu Sep 08 15:40:01 GMT 2011

*Screens of Terror:
**representations of war and terrorism
in film and television since 9/11*

'No other collection to date has so acutely, intelligently and coherently demonstrated the inseparability of information, entertainment, policy and public perception as prime vectors of "war on terror" discourses and sensibilities as these are represented in Hollywood products. If I had to choose a single source to interrogate the limitless suffusion throughout Hollywood texts of Hegemonic gaze and subjectivity – regardless of genre, whether "critical" or "mainstream" – it would be /Screens of Terror/.' - Oliver Boyd-Barrett, Professor of Journalism & Telecommunications, Bowling Green State University

'A compelling and timely interrogation of contemporary images of terror, this book has much to offer everyday consumers of popular films and television, be they students or casual readers.'
- Cynthia Weber, Professor of International Relations, University of Sussex
