Battle of Ideas: Terrorism with discussant Frank Furedi at the 2007 Battle of Ideas conference hosted by the Institute of Ideas.Launching his new book Invitation to Terror at the Battle of Ideas, Frank Furedi calls for a fundamental reorientation of the way that terrorism and global threats are conceptualised. He will argue that the impact of terrorism depends entirely on how society responds to it. Terrorism is a problem, but it is a threat whose source lies in the midst of our culture rather than in the hills of Afghanistan or the slums of Baghdad. Furedi's argument is that risk-averse Western attitudes represent an invitation to risk-taking 'fear entrepreneurs', who are able to take advantage of Western fears with minimal effort. Invitation To Terror shows how the events of 9/11 and the subsequent conflict both express and give shape to society's crisis of meaning and lack of purpose - IoImoreless
