Narrative Landmines: Rumors, Islamist Extremism, and the Struggle for Strategic Influence

by Bernardi, Daniel Leonard

Rutgers University Press | May 1, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Not yet rated | write a review

Narrative Landmines explores how rumors fit into and extend narrative systems and ideologies, particularly in the context of terrorism, counter-terrorism, and extremist insurgencies.  Beyond face-to-face communication, this book also addresses the role of new and social media in the creation and spread of rumors. Its concern is to foster a more sophisticated understanding of how oral and digital cultures work alongside economic, diplomatic, and cultural factors that influence the struggles between states and non-state actors in the proverbial battle of hearts and minds.  By providing fresh data from Singapore, Iraq, and Indonesia, the authors make a compelling argument for understanding rumors in these contexts as "narrative IEDs", weapons that can aid the extremist cause.
