From the Inside Flap
This annual award commends works published in a given year which extend our understanding of the root causes of bigotry and the range of options we as humans have in constructing alternative ways to share power. The United States long has been a country with diverse peoples. To our detriment it has more often drawn upon its heritage of conquest than its ideals. The Gustavus Myers Center promotes living out diversity equitably. It encourages and welcomes the increasing range of scholarly and advocacy publications which help us deal equitably with pluralism. It encourages collective action to dismantle structures of domination. Now in its 19th year, we believe fervently that in the struggle is the hope.
A Graphic Novel Not to be Missed!
"The drawings are truly illuminating (in all senses of the word)...Chin, a gifted illustrator and more, teaches us a lot about history and about meanings and moments of recognition for the nine students plus the nine persons interviewed...The self-disclosures as the students present to the class are memorable. Don't overlook this book. Too often adults dismiss graphic novels as a fad, a comic-book simplification. 9 of 1: A Window to the World is far from that. To those who teach and/or facilitate meetings, here's an excellent educational resource, fact and fiction, for the classroom or session."
"Oliver Chin has created a graphic novel that in an innovative and original way depicts the aftermath and personal reactions to the Sept. 11 tragedies. Some may feel that such a serious subject matter should not be committed to such a frivolous medium as the graphic novel, but Chin rose above the limiting connotations of this style of book and created perhaps one of the most honest works regarding the most shocking event in recent U.S. history."
- Daily Collegian, University of Massachusetts
"Students who are tired of dry and dense textbook passages - both in the future and in todays classrooms - should be encouraged to pick up Oliver Chins graphic novel "9 of 1: A Window to the World." The 112-page book, written in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, shows some of those different stories in an effort to reconcile the terrible events with a more comprehensive picture of the world that produced them."
- The Daily Free Press, Boston College

Oliver Chen is a menace to the comic book and general world of literature, and a terrible example of "wanting to teach children" turned into bad work. Avoid this book. Read morePublished on April 9, 2004 by Amy Wallace
This dreadful piece of pap is an embarrassment. In an attempt to be "politically correct", the author has combined childish drawing with feeble prose. Read morePublished on April 9, 2004 by Amy Wallace
