Mike Gemmati HST 102.07 Dr. Malik November 4 th , 2007 Critical Views of September 11 th : Analyses from Around the World Critical Views of September 11: Analyses from Around the World provides a wide- ranging collection of views interpreting trends in international relations and global conditions in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on Washington, D.C., and New York City. But rather than interpreting the events of 9/11 and their impact on the world, these essays appear to be more statements of pre existing opinions, formed far in advance from the tragic events of 9/11. A person seeking innovative, critical research on this historical moment and its potential impact should not read this. On the other hand, this collection represents a great historical snapshot of the diversity of views about America and its place in the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The thirteen essays in the book represent a collection of intellectuals from different disciplines and every continent other then Australia and Antarctica, writing on a diverse collection of topics, including domestic security, terrorism, globalization, international relations, economic liberalism, imperialism, and social and cultural change. All of the articles were written in the period from the 9/11 attacks to the start of the war in Afghanistan.
