The Age of Terror: America and the World After September 11

by

The Age of Terror: America and the World After September 11 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

September 11 marked the beginning of a new era--an age of terror in which counter-terrorism will be one of the highest priorities of national governments and international institutions. How we proceed in this new war depends in large measure on the answer to a prior question: what exactly happened here and why? In The Age of Terror, eight leading historians and policymakers address this question and examine the considerations and objectives of policy decisions in post-September 11 America. Co-published with the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization

Synopsis:

An agenda-setting team of experts looks at how terrorism can be understood, contained, and ultimately defeated
