What happened before and after the terrorist attack on April 19, 1995 in the policy arena? Who benefited from the tragedy of the Oklahoma City bombing? Can this analysis help in understanding the USA Patriot Act and how quickly it came to be passedMoreWhat happened before and after the terrorist attack on April 19, 1995 in the policy arena?

Who benefited from the tragedy of the Oklahoma City bombing? Can this analysis help in understanding the USA Patriot Act and how quickly it came to be passed in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 tragedies? This text helps to understand how and why certain policy making groups benefited from the process that surrounds this historic and tragic incident in American history.

This book is about the Oklahoma City bombing case and what policies were attached to, and resulted from, the media and political process that followed. The analysis uses three theories of political policy making to frame the discussion and analyze what happened before and after the attack, which policy elites were the most active in the media after the bombing, which groups were effective in getting policy passed in the year after the attack, and ultimately what does this policy process mean for the country in the post-September 11, 2001 era.

While none of the theories provide an analytical slam dunk, they do provide insight into the policy process that transpires after a significant terrorist attack and offer some insight into how the media plays a role in the policy process. As such they may help in understanding social and political responses to large-scale terrorist attacks that will continue to be inflicted on society in the future.
