Will change how you look at things for ever!,
This review is from: Writing the War on Terrorism: Language, Politics and Counter-terrorism (New Approaches to Conflict Analysis) (Paperback)Richard Jackson has come up with a brilliant book which delves into the official language of the 'war on terrorism'. He uses the commas around the phrase as he believes it has been normalised; that the things governments try and tell us have been too readily accepted.
He makes you think in a critical manner; there will be numerous occasions where you'll find your self nodding your head thinking 'the guy has a point'. Forever after you'll read and listen differently in regards to terrorism-related material. Jackson asks several posing questions, such as why we are so petrified of something that is as likely to kill us as a DIY accident or bee sting!
If you don't want to be taken in by what you are told, and would like to think you can form your own opinions on issues, then you must take a look at this book!
