Examines from multiple perspectives the historical events leading up to and following the 9/11 attacks. Explores related controversies, including intelligence failures, the impact of globalization, racial profiling, and conspiracy theories. Offers personal narratives from a reporter who witnessed the towers falling, two first responders and a search-and-rescue worker, as well as a document outlining the terrorists' preparation for the attack.
"Excellent color photography on the cover and inside the book is emotional, but not sensational. Many of the pictures are not stock images of 9/11. For a small library, this book would be fine as the only 9/11 text."
