Terror on the screen : witnesses and the re-animation of 9/11 as image-event, popular culture, and pornography by Luke Howie( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 190 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
Terrorism, the worker and the city : simulations and security in a time of terror by Luke Howie( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 134 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.

Witnesses to terror : understanding the meanings and consequences of terrorism by Luke Howie( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Terror creates fear and only succeeds where there are witnesses to consume terror. Counter-terrorism in Luke Howie's imaginative framework means countering feelings of terror. He has written an original and critical contribution to terrorism studies in situating different categories of witnesses, and documenting their narratives of trauma and repair. Thoughtful and compassionate, Howe writes without jargon, prediction or pretence about the age of terror.' - Bryan S. Turner, Professor of Sociology, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York, USA 'This impressive book not only engages critically with the specialized literature on terrorism but also introduces a new way of understanding the psychological effects of 9/11. This seminal research examines what it means when terrorists and the mass-media are inextricably intertwined. Howie brilliantly frames terrorism within the sense of uncertainty that it creates. Terrorism's power does not depend on damage or the number of casualties alone - it depends on who is witnesses. Undoubtedly, Witnesses to Terror, is an all-encompassing view of terrorism, which I must confess is one of the best book I have read on the subject.' - Maximiliano E. Korstanje, University of Palermo, Argentina
