Product Description

Review

'This provocative and timely collection contains rich diversity in both method and content. The average quality of contributions is remarkably high, and the best are gems.' - Henry Shue, Professor of Ethics and Public Life, Cornell University

This is a very timely and high quality collection of essays on the contexts, causes and consequences of September 11. Booth and Dunne have brought together a star-studded galaxy of authors - intellectuals, academics and thinkers who explore the myriad facets - terror, power, culture - of the attack on the twin towers from the viewpoints of international relations and international political economy. The essays are tightly argued and form a valuable collection for students, teachers, policymakers and policy watchers.' - Lord Meghnad Desai

'As we try to understand September 11, 2001, it would be hard to find a more diverse and interesting set of authors than those assembled here. Agree or disagree, you are bound to learn from them.' - Joseph S. Nye, Jr. author of The Paradox of American Power and former, Assistant Secretary of Defense

'This fascinating and well-written collection of essays provides abundant evidence that scholars sharply disagree not only about the causes of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States, but also about how best to combat the problem.' - John J. Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago
'Worlds in Collision is probably the most impressive academic symposium to appear since the World Trade Centre attack.' - The Age

'The editors have managed to garner contribution from a genuinely stellar group of scholars.' - Navraj Singh Ghaleigh, German Law Journal

'For all their academic orientations, the contributors have kept it both simple and palatable for the reader...the book's greatest strength is that it shifts the spotlight on to a range of questions that have been marginalized, sidelined and kept outside of policy discourse by governments across the world.' - Pranab Dhal Samanta, The Hindu

'As we try to understand September 11, 2001, it would be hard find a more diverse and interesting set of authors than those assembled here. Agree or disagree, you are bound to learn from them.' - Joseph S. Nye, Jr. author of The Paradox of American Power and former Assistant Secretary of Defense

'This fascinating and well-written collection of essays provides abundant evidence that scholars sharply disagree not only about the causes of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States, but also about how best to combat the problem.' - John J. Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor, Political Science Department, University of Chicago

'Many of the usual intellectual suspects are included in this new collection of essays, marking out the theoretical and controversial battle lines of the first phase of the war against terrorism and passionately debating its future ramifications. A long list of distinguished contributors, including Chomsky and Fukuyama, provide a crucially global insight on topics as diverse as Peace, Poetry and Pentagonese, Desperately Seeking Bin Laden and Democracy and Terror in the Era of Jihad vs McWorld. - New Statesman

'...distinguished by both insight and controversy...an eclectic and stimulating account of critical issues...highly recommended.' - F. S. Pearson, Choice

It is curious how a specific date - not a year, but a specific month and a specific day - have almost universally come to define a world historical crisis. Read the first page

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nicola on 23 Nov. 2002
Format: Paperback
This book contains some of the key political thinkers of the age and provides a fascinating insight into all aspects of political change as a result of the September 11th attacks. It is easy to read and yet contains in depth analysis of an academic level. It is equally useful from an academic and a general interest perspective and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to look beyond the human interest stories of September 11th into what the political consequences have been for the world.

An excellent contribution, this book is a must for anyone who wants to understand the impact of 9/11 on the World. It utilizes a diverse range of scholars who provide different perspectives, which is useful. I particularly enjoyed: Keohane, Gray, Halliday and Waltz.
So much has been written on 9/11 that an IR student might be led down the wrong path, this is worth reading.

A Very Distinguished Collection. 1 Jan. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The horrors of September 11th 2001 have resulted in terrorism and political violence as an area of study becoming increasingly topical. In terms of publishing output this has been a mixed blessing. The area has become "fashionable" but quantity has not always been matched by quality. The past year has, quite frankly, seen a lot of rubbish published - from both ends of the political spectrum.
This book goes some way towards redressing the balance. It is essentially a series of essays by various academics on various aspects of the "War on Terrorism". There is something for everyone here. You will almost certainly find something you agree with, but equally you will doubtless find something that will infuriate you! The book purposely draws on academics with unashamedly differing world views (many of whom are EXTREMELY distinguished - a real A list bunch). A chapter by the Marxists' favourite Noam Chomsky shares space with a chapter by the British uber-realist Colin Gray and another by that master of fair and balanced analysis, Lawrence Freedman (why has John Keegan got a knighthood when Freedman hasn't?). Kenneth Waltz and Robert O'Keohane both feature, as do half the International Politics department of Aberystwith University. You really would be hard pressed to find work by so many quality people in one place elsewhere.
There's somebody for everybody here - corny but true. These are the people who have been setting the standards for the debate - not the left wing editorials of the European press and the right wing columnists in the American print media that both sides seem to get so worked up about these days.
If you're interested in the debate on the "War on Terror" post September 11th, this book deserves to be on your shelves.
Excellent Resource 28 May 2013
By Chloe Esmon Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We homeschool our children and customized a "Modern World History (1895-Present)" course for our highschool aged son. During the course, we had him read several books including this one and (most of) Max Hasting's "Inferno". This was a great collection of writings on topics that are usually discussed "around" our youth, but not with our youth. In order to understand where we are today, we need to be able to access information that hasn't been glamorized or homogenized by the media and the politicians. This book was a great resource for us. Recommend.

As an author myself, I highly recommend that you purchase this book. "Worlds in Collision" is an enlightening resource, towards the realization of European Cultural will towards domination, etc. I got my copy.
