About this product
- DescriptionAfter September 11, 2001, the void left following the attack on the Twin Towers in the heart of New York was the visible symbol that there was to be a breaking point with the past. The attacks dramatically changed the everyday lives of the American people and the new devastating landscape led people to seek to restore the certainties that had been so suddenly shattered. In doing this, Americans went back to the historical myths in their culture. This book explores the collective memory and historical American myths like, for example, the myth of the incent nation and the frontier myth, and shows how some of these nationally considered historical truths have t disappeared, but were indeed exhumed in the music produced post-9/11.
