The Day that Changed Everything?

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, were an event that for most Americans will be remembered for a lifetime as a pivotal moment in history. As in the case of the Kennedy assassination a generation before, on November 22, 1963, Americans share a collective memory and trauma of the event, often asking each other and reminiscing about what one was doing during that fateful moment. Now, with several years having passed since 9/11, this series reflects on that event by bringing together from a broad spectrum of disciplines the leading thinkers of our time.

Select praise for Volume 1, The Impact of 9/11 on Politics and War:

“An excellent collection of new perspectives.”
―John F. Lehman, Member, 9-11 Commission

“…tremendous insights from a variety of perspectives. A great read.”
―Dr. Hans Blix, Author of Disarming Iraq

“…fine collection of essays by well chosen experts provides surprisingly conceptual analyses from often divergent perspectives...an important contribution to our understanding of the impact of 9/11 on national and international politics…in a crisp, readable fashion.”
―Robert L. Gallucci, Dean, Georgetown University Walsh School of Foreign Service

Select praise for Volume 2, The Impact of 9-11 on Business and Economics:

“This is a valuable collection of diverse, creative and insightful perspectives on the effect that the 9-11 terrorist attack has had, and will continue to have, on our economy and the ways we do business within it.”
―Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School, Author of The Innovator’s Dilemma

“An impressive and comprehensive analysis of the economic, political, and business consequences of 9/11 on the corporate environment.  The book reveals useful insights about how much has changed.”
―Paul Bracken, Professor of Management, Yale University, Author of Strategic Foresight 

Select praise for Volume 3, The Impact of 9-11 and the New Legal Landscape: 

“An impressive and comprehensive critical guide to some of the most pressing questions posed by the United States’ response to the terrorist attacks of 9/11.  Each essay offers fresh insights on the thorny question of how to reconcile security and liberty in post-9/11 America.”
―David Cole, Professor of Law, Georgetown University, and author of Less Safe, Less Free

“For many people, the notion that 9/11 changed everything is a slogan.  This superb volume makes it a reality, providing a nuanced yet highly readable exposition of the strategic realities of the post-9/11 world.”
―David B. Rivkin, Jr., Attorney and Author

“This superlative collection of scholarly and personal reflections should help to clear the air, so that we can truly begin the process of assessing the damage we have done and reconstructing our laws.”
―Susan N. Herman, President of the American Civil Liberties Union

Select praise for Volume 4, The Impact of 9-11 on the Media, Arts, and Entertainment:

“It’s hard to imagine a more vital and absorbing subject than the one treated by a wide variety of thinkers in this volume.  The impact of 9/11 will take years to comprehend in a full and appropriate way.  Matthew J. Morgan has performed a heroic task here, assembling these essays that range over a vast array of topics related to the impact of this cataclysmic day on the interlocking worlds of media, arts, and entertainment.  I learned so much from these essays, and I strongly recommend this collection to all serious readers.”
―Jay Parini, D. E. Axinn Professor of English, Middlebury College

Select praise for Volume 5, The Impact of 9-11 on Psychology and Education:

“Millions have wondered about the psychological consequences of 9/11. No doubt hundreds have thought about collecting diverse interpretations. But only Matthew Morgan has actually secured testimony from psychologically-informed observers. Thoughtful persons today―as well as thoughtful persons in the future―are in his debt.”
―Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

“This collection of well-written, timely, inter-woven essays will prove of great value to psychologists and educators at all levels―from the novice student to the experienced expert.”
―Fathali M. Moghaddam, Professor of Psychology, Georgetown; Author of How Globalization Spurs Terrorism

Select praise for Volume 6, The Impact of 9-11 on Religion and Philosophy:

“This volume completes the fascinating series of books on the impact of 9/11 on various areas of the common life.  …a valuable contribution to the study of how events do or do not shape ideas, and how comprehensive worldviews interpret historical events.”
―Max L. Stackhouse, De Vries Professor of Theology and Public Life Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary

“This book responds to the challenge posed by the religiously motivated violence of 9/11 to moderate Islam and to main-line Western thinking about religion and its relationship to political life.  The authors are solid, the essays probing, the insights offered likely to endure.”
―James Turner Johnson, Professor of Religion, Rutgers University

Praise for The American Military after 9/11, the prequel to the series…authored by series editor Matthew J. Morgan. Published by Palgrave Macmillan in February 2008.

“...an empirical gem…a valuable addition to the libraries of anyone with an interest in military history, sociology, psychology, or political science.”
―Editor’s shelf, Parameters: U.S. Army War College Quarterly, Summer 2008

“An essential and necessary tour-de-force across the American civil-military relations literature contextualized in the aftermath of the post-9/11 world. …a strong contribution to the evolving literature.”
―Morten G. Ender, Sociology Program Director, U.S. Military Academy

“…solid and well-written… covers a great deal of intellectual ground efficiently. …has the scholarly substance to satisfy specialists in civil-military specialists and the readability to interest a lay audience.  I recommend it highly…belongs on the bookshelf of anyone concerned with the effect of the current and projected future threat environments on the military and on its relation to the society it serves.”
―John Allen Williams, Professor of Political Science, Loyola University
