The events of September 11, 2001, did more than set off the war on terror. Passionate support for-and opposition to-military intervention abroad, soaring budget deficits, expansion of domestic surveillance and policing, renewed debate regarding a military draft, and shifts in attitudes regarding immigration are just a few of the changes in American culture after the terrorist attacks.

"The volume's strength is its tying together of various events,
discussed in essays that are presented in chronological order. . .
. In general, this is a fine companion to Spencer C. Tucker's more
general Encyclopedia of Middle East Wars (ABC-CLIO, 2010). .
. . Appropriate for high school, academic, and public library
reference and circulating collections." - Library
"The narrative is longer and more in-depth than those found in most reference works. It is also reasonably objective and unbiased-very important for such a controversial subject." - Choice
