About this product
- DescriptionThe cowardly acts of September 11, 2001 destroyed buildings and killed close to 3,000 incent people. Terrorism that day attacked a nation's consciousness and changed the way of life for hundreds of millions Americans. While most September 11th books focus on a specific issue of the attacks, attempt to assign blame, or zero in on conspiracy theories, The 9/11 Project: A Journalist's Perspective instead touches upon a range of subjects and provides a wide historical account of the worst act of terrorism on American soil. In addition to the 9/11 strikes, the book covers the anthrax attacks, the invasion of Afghanistan, the death of Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida operatives, court cases, Guantanamo Bay, acts of terrorism against the United States, terrorist groups, rebuilding the World Trade Center, and the creation of the September 11th Memorial and Museum. The 9/11 Project: A Journalist's Perspective is one of the most comprehensive pieces of literature documenting the events of the day, accounts leading up to September 11th, and subsequent stories thereafter. Dr. Dovan H. Myrie, a news executive and university instructor, has spent fifteen years writing this book. His efforts in recounting various aspects of the attacks, the rebuilding process, insights, and the personal stories of the victims is thing short of spectacular.
