I recommend this book for all Americans.
William Kuhn
I think this is a good book for anyone but especially for someone who is just starting to read up on the 9/11 events.
A good first volume to get 9/11 research out of the 'conspiracy theory' realm.

Format: Paperback
Speaking as a middle-class, hard-working, sensible, sane and intelligent person, the referenced facts that are presented in this book provides evidence that is, quite frankly, shocking.

Being one who previously treaded very carefully over believing such consipracy theories as Princess Diana, Roswell etc, this book has certainly captured my imagination like no other.

The book tends to steer well clear of conspiracy stirring, instead asking some very basic common sense questions which, since 9/11 are staring us all in the face, and questions which most of us (myself included) had failed to address having been caught up in the horror of 9/11.

It also focuses on, and takes to pieces, the official 9/11 report with such surgical efficiency that you wonder how on earth it was ever allowed to stand as an 'offical account'.

This book asks all the questions, and I for one am very glad that these people have put their reputations on the line to bring us perhaps the most compelling read ever.

And to Seth J. Frantzman - You obviously feel that as an official Amazon reviewer, you somehow know more than phd qualified experts with years of specialist experience. The only lunatic ramblings have come from your dismissive, and totally inaccurate, review of this title.

Format: Paperback
The essays in this timely and essential volume are written by a variety of intellectuals from academia, the military, the sciences, and beyond. To read this book is to discover the reality that is kept from consumers of watered-down and even deceptive mainstream news sources (remember WMD?) There is no question that a conspiracy was involved in perpetrating 9/11--the government itself assures us this conspiracy involved 19 young Arab Muslims and a few ringleaders like Osama bin Laden (FBI says no hard evidence to link him, hence no indictment) and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (whose "testimony" was provided to the 9/11 commission by the CIA, and makes up most of the official case for the Muslim/Arab conspiracy theory.) The flimsy official story is contradicted by historical precedent of false-flag terror committed routinely by nations such as the U.S., Italy, and Israel, among others throughoiut history (search for the Lavon Affair, e.g.) This issue, as well as the inexplicable collapse of building number 7 and the twin towers are dealt with by examining facts surrounding the events, not speculation or conjecture. The conclusion that is evidently correct is that elements of the U.S. government with help from the intelligence services of Pakistan, Israel, and others engineered a spectacular attack in order to draw the U.S. into a war our people would otherwise never have supported. This issue is changing the world as I write these words and this book, which I own and will treasure as part of my collection of true 9/11 investigative work along with David Griffin's other books and books like the Terror Timeline by Paul Thompson, is an invaluable introduction to the issues for those just becoming aware of this historic hoax.Read more ›

89 of 102 people found the following review helpful By Luc REYNAERT on October 21, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is a very courageous and hard-hitting book about the 9/11 massacre, its global context and its catastrophic aftermath.

Beyond any doubt, the official account of the 9/11 incident is false; e.g. the 3 WTC towers (WTC 7 wasn't even hit) were brought down by controlled demolition (S.E. Jones).

The put options affair constitutes considerable evidence that some US officials had foreknowledge of the attacks.

Those attacks were used to support an agenda worked out in advance: the invasion of Iraq, `a supreme crime under international law'. Moreover, they served to heighten the existing `strategy of tension', spreading fear among the population for further terrorist attacks.

A strategy of `terrorist' killings of innocent civilians in order to achieve political objectives, to discredit opponents or to justify anti-freedom laws, is a very well-known policy all over the world, e.g. the Berlin `La Belle' disco or the Bologna railway explosions.

But, cui bono? The strategy generated fabulous pay-offs to the military and oil corporations.

The investigations of different authors unveil the existence of a US global dominance group of a good 200 people (the `deep' state) who are trying to impose a Pax Americana, a militarized world order under total US dominance. This group controls the military contractors and the media, constituting a watchdog of acceptable ideological messages, news and information contents.

They should also be behind fraudulent elections (P. Philips), because a deviation of more than 5 % between the exit polls and the ultimate results is a statistical impossibility.

...a very difficult choice, as they include books by Ahmed,Griffin,Tarpley, Zwicker and others! This collection of brilliant articles is hard to beat because it covers the key aspects of 9/11 truth and a wide range of connected important issues concerning our future. If you only have time for one book, read this!
