Midwest Book Review:The 9/11 Project: A Journalist's Perspective is an immense compendium of information about the September 11th terrorist attacks.
Eschewing speculation or theories in order to emphasize facts above all, The 9/11 Project is filled with data about the attacks and their casualties, the makeup of Al-Qaida, the subsequent war in Afghanistan, the creation of memorials, and much more. Because the 9/11 Project presents a solid wealth of information in plain English, it's an invaluable addition to private and public library Terrorism Studies shelves.
