Product Description

Product Description

A book of insight, reaction and analysis to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

A decade after that fateful autumn day, the extraordinary images and memories remain with us – where we were when we heard the news; how we felt at seeing the first, then the second tower collapse. 9/11: Ten Years On brings together the very best Guardian journalism of the past ten years to offer a moment of reflection and understanding, with a new introduction by Ed Pilkington.

Ten percent of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to charity.

4.0 out of 5 stars 9/11 Ten Years On 6 May 2013
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

This is a thought provoking read about the events of 9/11 and the aftermath of what Ed Pilkington calls one of those experiences we all share in an otherwise divided world. On 9/11 Pilkington was the International Editor of the Guardian, worried about his three reporters in New York; one of whom, Jane Martinson, was only five days from giving birth. There were initial fears of 40,000 dead in the confused reports at the scene, followed by first reactions - criticism of the President and hatred and paranoia aimed at muslims not only in America but worldwide (I was shocked to read a school bus of muslim children were stoned in Australia), the violence and the counter violence of the ten years which followed the attack. There are reports on the attack on the Pentagon, but most of the book deals with events in New York; including the first anniversary at Ground Zero, the 'mosque' controversy, the death of Osama bin Laden and reflecting on what happened ten years on. This is a balanced account of a major event, the consequences of which we still live with today. I highly recommend the Guardian Shorts series - they cover a range of different subjects and are very well edited.
