Editorial Reviews

The attacks of September 11, 2001, were over within an hour and a half, but the aftermath remains with us still. At first, the Bush administration opposed the formation of any formal public study of the events of 9/11. Eventually though, a commission headed by Republican Tom Kean was appointed; it first convened 441 days after the al-Qaeda assault. The Kean Commission faced a behemoth task; as they interviewed over 1,200 people in ten countries, they were forced to persevere against outside pressure and official interference. In The Commission, Philip Shenon, the lead New York Times reporter on the investigation, produces an uncensored history of this critical chapter in American history. The book reveals not only the inside story of the Kean Commission; it also offers new insights into the attacks themselves.
