Books & Ebooks From The Catalog

Cover Art
America between the wars : from 11/9 to 9/11 : the misunderstood years between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the start of the War on Terror / Derek Chollet and James Goldgeier. - Chollet, Derek H.
Call Number: Main Stacks: E839.5 .C475 2008
ISBN: 9781586484965
When the Berlin Wall collapsed and the Cold War ended on November 9, 1989, the West declared victory: democracy and free markets had prevailed and the United States emerged as the triumphant superpower. The tension that had defined a generation was over, and it seemed that peace was at hand. The next twelve years rolled by in a haze of complacent self-congratulation--what some now call a "holiday from history." When September 11, 2001, set the U.S. on a new path, confused Americans asked: How did we get here? Foreign policy experts Chollet and Goldgeier examine how the decisions and debates of those years shaped the events, arguments, and politics of the world we live in today. This book tells the story of a generation of leaders grappling with a moment of dramatic transformation--changing how we should think about the recent past, and uncovering important lessons for the future.

Cover Art
Out of the blue : the story of September 11, 2001, from Jihad to Ground Zero - Richard Bernstein and the staff of the New York Times.
Call Number: Main Stacks: HV6432 .B47 2002
ISBN: 0805074104
Following the lives of heroes, victims, and terrorists, "New York Times" journalist Bernstein weaves a complex tale of a multitude of lives colliding in conflagration on the fateful morning of September 11, 2001.

Cover Art
9/11 and the War on Terror - Holloway, David
Call Number: Available online via Ebrary (Access restricted to authorized UMass Boston patrons).
ISBN: 0748633804

Cover Art
American ground : unbuilding the World Trade Center - Langewiesche, William.
Call Number: Main Stacks: HV6432 .L364 2003
ISBN: 0865476756
At the center of the book is the team of engineers, many of them instrumental in building the towers, who now must collaborate in the sad task of disassembling them. Their responses are as dramatic and unpredictable as the shifting pile of rubble and the surrounding "slurry wall" that constantly threatens to collapse, potentially flooding a large part of underground Manhattan. They are also emotional and territorial, as firemen, police, widows, and officials attempt to claim the tragedy-and the difficult work of extracting the rubble and the thousands of dead buried there-as their own.

Cover Art
9/11 : the culture of commemoration - Simpson, David,
Call Number: Main Stacks: HV6432.7 .S557 2006
ISBN: 9780226759388
After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, a general sense that the world was different—that nothing would ever be the same—settled upon a grieving nation; the events of that day were received as cataclysmic disruptions of an ordered world. Refuting this claim, David Simpson examines the complex and paradoxical character of American public discourse since that September morning, considering the ways the event has been aestheticized, exploited, and appropriated, while “Ground Zero” remains the contested site of an effort at adequate commemoration.
