Abstract: This article examines the relationship between terrorism and tourism. Although the travel and tourism industry and government have done much to control it, terrorism remains a powerful form of communication which utilizes the tourist to convey messages. Despite their understandable expectations of government and industry action against terrorism, potential tourists must assess risk on their own and take action to protect themselves as they travel and recreate. An analogy may be drawn to touristic medicine: just as the first line of defense in health care is the tourist, so the first line of defense against terrorism lies with the tourist.
