In an unprecedented effort, The New York Times opens its picture archive of September 11th and the aftermath at home and abroad. The result is groundbreaking photojournalism punctuated with authoratative prose. Culled from both published and previously unpublished material, A Nation Challenged highlights the best work of the paper's award-winning staffers-the work that has made the Times the paper of record for these events.

With a foreword, afterword, and original background essays by writers such as Pulitzer Prize winner John Burns, N. R. Kleinfeld, Dan Barry, and Celestine Bohlen, readers will follow the stunning events of September 11th on the national and international stage. Special charts and graphics supply another level of clarity and understanding, while the brilliant photographs provide counterpoint and perspective to carefully chosen text.

With 250 full-color photographs, A Nation Challenged is the definitive volume for all who desire a comprehensive visual chronicle of this pivotal time in America's history.

Editorial Reviews

Vito F Sinisi
The New York Times won a well-deserved Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the September 11th terrorist attacks and their aftermath. In this special hardcover keepsake edition, these special sections of the world-famous "Paper of Record" have been gathered together for posterity.
Publishers Weekly
"That morning [9/11] began one of the largest mobilizations by The Times since World War II," writes Howell Raines, the paper's executive editor. The photographic fruits of that superb effort are on display here: unforgettable color images of the Twin Towers in flames, a body in midair, streets clouded with smoke and ash. And there is much more: diagrams detailing how the towers collapsed and the anatomy of an al-Qaeda underground bunker; and original essays by N.R. Kleinfeld, John F. Burns and other Times reporters.
