Shana Gadarian and Anxious Politics

How does the rising fear of terrorism influence the presidential race? What effects does the candidates’ heated rhetoric have on the voters? What role do the media play in anxious politics?

For the ninth episode of Campaign Context, Professor Shana Gadarian (Syracuse University) talks about fear politics and the effects anxiety has on politics. Gadarian is an emerging authority on the effects of terrorism on democratic society, and the co-author of the recent Anxious Politics: Democratic Citizenship in a Threatening World. She is also an occasional contributor to the Monkey Cage blog at the Washington Post.
