Oliverio (social and behavioral sciences, Arizona State U. West) maintains that the US is a site of discursive struggle about terrorism, just as Italy was in the 1970s. She examines the Achille Lauro affair and the TWA 847 hijacking, which, she maintains, occurred at the same moment in time, but at different moments of social construction. She concludes that mainstream knowledge about terrorism has become complacent and stagnant, and ignores the fact that political discourse shapes perceptions of reality.
