Terrorized: How the War on Terror Affected American Culture and Society
"Terrorized" argues that America was radically transformed by the War on Terror that President Bush declared after 9/11. This book concentrates on how measures adopted by the Bush administration (revenge, security measures, surveillance, torture) seeped into the texture of American society (especially the media, movies, television), permanently altering Americans' confidence in their future.
