Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Reflection is one of mankind’s principal tools that aid us in attempts to get it right the next time. Assisting in that reflection is The Impact of 9/11 on Politics and War, the first volume in a six-volume series "The Day that Changed Everything?" from the folks at Palgrave Macmillan. The series editor, Matthew J. Morgan, has been a regular supporter of this jourbanal over the years, and his expertise as an author is equally obvious in his editing of this marvelous series. The series captures the thoughts of a number of the leading thinkers of our time regarding the impact of this dramatic attack on various domestic institutions and international and security policies. With contributions from the likes of R. James Woolsey, Jr., and Ambassador Marc Grossman, the book provides an excellent perspective for understanding and applying the lessons from this terrible tragedy. A must read for anyone interested in understanding the impact of 9/11 and its aftermath."—"Editor's Shelf," Parameters: The U.S. Army War College Quarterly, Autumn 2009

"After 9/11, the world was confronted with incredible new challenges in politics and war. The essays in this volume explore these challenges with tremendous insights from a variety of perspectives. A great read for anyone interested in the politics of the post-9/11 world.”—Dr. Hans Blix, Chair of the WMD Commission and Author of Disarming Iraq

“The distinguished group of authors featured in this volume sets out a full, fascinating, and multifaceted interdisciplinary assessment of what we have learned about ‘The Day that Changed Everything.’ Whatever your view of the implications of that day, be prepared to have your assumptions challenged.”—From the Foreword by former CIA Director James Woolsey

"An excellent collection of new perspectives for understanding and undertaking measures to apply the lessons from that terrible tragedy.”—John F. Lehman, Chairman, J.F. Lehman & Company, Member, National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (9-11 Commission)

“This fine collection of essays by well chosen experts provides surprisingly conceptual analyses from often divergent perspectives. All in all, the volume represents an important contribution to our understanding the impact of 9/11 on national and international politics, and does it in a crisp, readable fashion.”—Robert L. Gallucci, Dean, Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University
