Format: Paperback
A good and wide ranging collection of essays, most interesting for the fact that they were written so soon after 9/11.

Startling, Honest Reflections 12 Dec 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Trauma at Home is the most thoughtful collection of responses to September 11th I have seen. Every essay is a reminder of what I think we've begun to forget, as individuals and a nation: how the event startled us out of our ordinary methods of understanding and acting in the world. The book begins with Toni Morrison's elegy, 'The Dead of September 11': 'But I would not say a word until I could set aside all I know or believe about nations, wars, leaders, the governed and ungovernable.' Judith Greenberg has collected a remarkable number of essays that find their authors in the process of figuring out how to think once they've been startled out of all they know or believe.

A different, compelling and intelligent book on 9/11 3 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
So much of the analysis about September 11 is trite and packaged that I found this book especially refreshing. You have leading academics, writers, pyschoanalysts and others probing beneath the easy conclusions to offer real insight about 9/11. Greenberg's own essay is one of the best, but you will also learn and benefit from many, many others.
