Assistant Professor of Communications Dana Janbek has co-authored a new book exploring the use of the internet by global terrorist organizations.

Janbek, who came to Lasell College in the Fall 2009, focused on this aspect of communication among terrorism groups as part of her doctoral thesis at the University of Miami. She often presents on the topic at national and international conferences.

Her new book, co-authored with Philip Seib from the Center on Public Diplomacy at the University of Southern California, is titled Global Terrorism and New Media: The Post-Al Qaeda Generation and became available in the U.S. in October.

According to the book, terrorist organizations use the Internet for propaganda, communication with other groups and organization.
