Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
On September 11, 2001 the lives of thousands of people were destroyed when four jet airplanes were hijacked and crashed into sites in New York, Washington D.C., and rural Pennsylvania. In a relative few minutes the World Trade Center, the symbol of American financial power, lay as a crumbled, smoking ruin. The Pentagon, headquarters of U.S. military might, was breached and burning. In a moment, the world had changed and Americans were at risk. Those terrible attacks are the featured topic of this chapter in the "Landmark Events in American History" series. In this illustrated volume, Anderson carefully traces not only the historic events of that fateful day, but also the human dimensions of it as well. Anderson also does an excellent job of presenting the growing hatred among radicalized Muslims toward the United States and Israel that spurred on the September 11 hijackers. In telling this sad but important story, Anderson includes striking quotations from eyewitnesses who took part in those not to be forgotten events. This is a gripping and important subject and one that Anderson truly does justice to. Copiously illustrated, this is a book that will inform, orient, and move its readers. 2004, World Almanac Library, Ages 12 up.
