About this item

This reference for students in high school and up presents excerpts from 80 documents on the September 11th terrorist attacks, their immediate aftermath, and the subsequent War on Terror. Most of the chosen documents were generated by US government agencies or officials associated with the federal government; some of the documents were previously classified. A few of the documents were even produced by terror organizations or their leaders. Analysis of each excerpt is intended to help readers understand both the context and the significance of each selection. Documents are grouped in sections on documents prior to Sept. 11, 2001; documents from Sept. 11, 2001 and immediately after; documents from the presidency of George W. Bush 2002-2008; and documents from the presidency of Barack Obama 2009-2016. The book also includes an extensive chronology of modern terrorism and the US response. A reader’s guide groups the documents into 13 thematic categories, including Al Qaeda communications, Congressional testimony, intelligence agency activities, legal opinions and court rulings, presidential addresses, and strategy documents.
