Coping with Anxiety in an Age of Terrorism

Raymond Flannery

Terrorism. It is a tragically informing reality of our times. As poet W. H. Auden characterized a different era “The Age of Anxiety,” so ours is “The Age of Terrorism.” Urban-transit systems post signs “If you see something, say something.” The warning appears in several languages. Yet, paradoxically, there is still no known profile of a terrorist.

This reassuring book is directed at two audiences: the hypervigilant public that ever anticipates the next random terrorist incident and professionals, toward whom the public turns for support following such events. The message, from an expert on life-stress and violence, is sobering: Once the immediate danger has passed, it is necessary to make our understandable anxiety more tolerable so that we are not overcome by our fears of such terrorist events. This book shows how.



“An impressive array of sociological studies and crime statistics to support the contention that violence has become a major public-health problem ‘of epidemic proportion.’” —Publishers Weekly

"Impressively informed and informative, thoroughly 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, Coping with Anxiety in An Age of Terrorism is an extraordinary and urgently recommended addition to both community and academic library collections.
Synopsis: The use of terrorism to promote a cause is a tragical reality of our times in almost every country in the world. It is now common place in Europe and North America to see urban-transit systems post signs "if you see something, say something". The warning appears in several languages. Yet, paradoxically, there is as yet no known profile of a terrorist.
Coping with Anxiety in An Age of Terrorism is a reassuring study that is directed at two specific readerships: the hypervigilant public that ever anticipates the next random terrorist incident and professionals toward whom the public turns for support following such events.
The message, from this expert on life-stress and violence is sobering and timely: Once the immediate danger has passed, it is necessary to make our understandable anxiety more tolerable so that we are not overcome by our fears of such terrorist events.
Coping with Anxiety in An Age of Terrorism specifically shows how.
Critique: Impressively informed and informative, thoroughly 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, Coping with Anxiety in An Age of Terrorism is an extraordinary and urgently recommended addition to both community and academic library collections."—Paul T. Vogel, reviewer
