Overview

Before the World Trade Center's Twin Towers fell on September 11, 2001, they were the target of an earlier terrorist plot.

Pellowski describes this horrific event, the worldwide manhunt for the killers, and the controversial trial of the terrorists, including mastermind Ramzi Yousef. He explains the complicated legal, historical, and political issues involved in these events, and he sheds light on the even more destructive events to come.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-A well-balanced look at the events leading up to, during, and after the 1993 bombing. Pellowski describes the incident, the capture and trials of the accused, and the connections between Islamic fundamentalism and terrorist activities. A small section at the end discusses the September 11, 2001, attacks and President Bush's "Most Wanted" list of terrorists. The text is clear and succinct; readers are given a listing of "People with Key Roles" to keep track of all those involved. Black-and-white photographs and an artist's courtroom sketch are included. Overall, this is a solid resource for reports and general information. Charles J. Shields's The 1993 World Trade Center Bombing (Chelsea, 2002) is for older readers.-G.
