Fighting with images is a kind of psychological fighting. Unintended consequences are the rule, not the exception.

The propaganda videos from the IS fighters are nothing new. On the contrary, terrorists have always made use of images to spread their cause through the media – as did their enemy, the state. In her study, Charlotte Klonk shows which role the images of terror have played since the 19th century up through to our immediate present. Examining the concrete case studies with the expert insights of an art historian, she outlines the strategies of the images orders them in their historical developments, and at the end of the book answers the pressing question of the ethical treatment of terrorist images. This is a vital book for understanding the background of the terrorism omnipresent today.
