In reply to the complaint about 9/11 not being included, I quote, "There was one issue on which we all did agree: given the difficulty of gaining proper historical perspective on the recent past, we chose not to include any event that occurred after 1965." Gillon also writes, "We deliberately sought out surprising dates that would provoke discussion and debate. That meant overlooking many obvious choices- the signing of the Constitution, the first shots of the Civil War upon Fort Sumter, and the attack on Pearl Harbor- in favor of days whose importance and impact have been undervalued."Was this review helpful?
