Terrorism, the worker and the city simulations and security in a time of terror by Luke Howie ( )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Luke Howie's book considers what steps managers and employees can and should take to protect their businesses from the amorphous and indefinable threat of terrorism. Even where they don't perceive a high level threat, business managers who might face having to account for themselves to some post event Inquiry have taken action in consequence of the situation. Often, that action amounts to the introduction of what can be described as 'Simulated Security' which can be effective in terms of providing the reassurance to counter the terrorist objective of disrupting normal life through fear.

Witnesses to terror : understanding the meanings and consequences of terrorism by Luke Howie ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Witnesses of terrorism, spread throughout the world, watched the 9/11 terrorist attacks in real-time. Images were instantly beamed to audiences both near and far from where passenger airplanes were hijacked and flown into some of the United States' most recognisable locations. These images were captured, recorded and have been replayed incessantly in the first decade of the twenty-first century. It is a decade that quickly became defined for many as a time of terror. This book argues that to understand the meanings and consequences of terrorism, we must understand terrorism's witnesses. Witnesses are unique, and what they witness is subsequently received and understood in unique, subjective ways. But the question of whose witnessing counts, and which stories are the most legitimate, is of vital importance for understanding the meanings and consequences of contemporary terrorism. Witnesses are never distinct from the things that they witness, and witnessing is never merely watching
Terror on the screen : witnesses and the re-animation of 9/11 as image-event, popular culture, and pornography by Luke Howie ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It has often been said that everything changed after 9/11. Popular, tele-visual and screen cultures were not immune. Television shows like 24, Battlestar Galactica, Family Guy and American Dad, and movies like Team America: World Police represented the post-9/11 world in complex and symbolic ways. Television shows like Friends, How I Met Your Mother and Dollhouse, and a Vogue: Italia fashion shoot grappled with the post-9/11 world through absences, presences and symbolic representations of cities and security. These are the artifacts of post-9/11 screen cultures, and witnesses cannot help but watch
