Overview

The authorized hardcover, indexed edition of the national bestseller.
Nearly three thousand people died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In Lower Manhattan, on a field in Pennsylvania, and along the banks of the Potomac, the United States suffered the single largest loss of life from an enemy attack on its soil.
In November 2002 the United States Congress and President George W. Bush established by law the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission. This independent, bipartisan panel was directed to examine the facts and circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks, identify lessons learned, and provide recommendations to safeguard against future acts of terrorism.
This volume is the authorized edition of the Commission's final report.

Editorial Reviews

Time
“Meticulous in its reconstruction and unflinching in its conclusions.”
Washington Post
“A document of historic sweep and almost unprecedented detail.”
Foreign Affairs
The immediate success of the 9/11 report may stem from the reluctance of any major U.S. politician to dispute its conclusions, but its long-term value will lie in the quality of its history. The background to the struggle with al Qaeda has been told elsewhere, but this account-of how the attacks came about, of why they took the form they did, and of the difficulties the U.S. government faced as it attempted to adjust to this new type of threat-is bound to be definitive. The implication of the report is that the adjustment is still far from complete. The recommendations start with the need for a global strategy, which points vaguely in the right direction, before moving on to the inevitable proposals for procedural reform at which all such reports end up. Unfortunately, it may be that the United States has structural features that are always going to render calls for greater harmony, unity, coordination, cohesion, and so on as forlorn as they are warranted.
