Product description

Review

The best overview of the 9/11 decade so far in print (Economist)

A magisterial history of the last decade ... The long patient sentences of The 9/11 Wars are suffused with the melancholy of a man who has learned a great deal from long exposure to atrocity and folly (Pankaj Mishra Guardian)

A comprehensive summing up of the past decade's violent events ... The 9/11 Wars warrants great respect (Metro)

Pacy, well-researched, and packed with telling anecdotes, this book's strength is in its detailed, balanced overview ... At a time when there are more books out on terrorism than ever before ... this is likely to be among the best (Sunday Telegraph)

[Burke] is one of the most respected and experienced foreign correspondents in the business ... A major authority on the politics and organisation of Islamic extremism and ... a talented writer with the rare gift of joining effortless prose to challenging scholarship ... [The 9/11 Wars] is a magnificent achievement (Irish Times)

A reader wanting a more dispassionate survey of how 9/11, and the response to it, may have shaped parts of the world will do no better than invest in [this] brilliant book (David Aaronovitch The Times)

This remarkably balanced, well-sourced and very well-written book ... will be turned to in the future ... [Burke] has demonstrated impressive expertise as a historian who has had the advantage of having been present on many of the battlefields he describes (Andrew Roberts Evening Standard)

[A] lucid, sane account ... taut, careful reporting ... Remarkable (Scotsman)

Making sense of the aftermath of 9/11 ... is a monumental task - but Burke is up to the job. The 9/11 Wars is insightful, thorough, and at times fascinating (Daniel Byman Foreign Policy)

Potent ... journalism of a high order. Like all good reporters, Burke is something of a scholar, drawing meticulously on interview notes years old, and on extensive background reading. He excels, too, in describing the experiences of ordinary Muslims; such insights make this book essential for understanding the past decade (Sherard Cowper-Coles Sunday Times)

About the Author
