Book Review

Throughout the 1990s a vast conflict was brewing. The storm broke on September 11, 2001. Since then much of the world has seen invasion. Bombings battle and riots, hundreds of thousands of people in all have died. These are the 9/11 wars.

Jason Burke, a first hand witness to many of the conflict’s key moments, has written the definitive account of its course. At once investigation, reportage and contemporary history, the 9/11 wars is based on hundreds of interviews with participants, including desperate refugees and senior intelligence officials, ministers and foot soldiers, active militants and their victims. Burke cuts through the myth and propaganda of all sides to reveal the reality behind well knows and lesser known episodes events are given a pattern and relationship previously missing; so too are critical issues facing the world today; the tensions between local identities and globalization, the rising forces of Islamism and nationalism, the attraction of extremism and violence for some.
