Summary, etc.:
In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, one question has been on the mind of every American: "How did this happen?" This book seeks to answer this question in all its critical aspects: the motives and actions of the terrorists, the status of our military, the context of the Middle East, airport security, diplomatic pressures. It also provides readers with an authoritative but accessible account of the issues that led to the present crisis--not as a symposium of opinion, but as a series of narratives on different aspects of the situation, providing perspective, information, and sound interpretation.
