Assisting in that reflection is The Impact of 9/11 on Politics and War, the first volume in a six-volume series “The Day that Changed Everything?” from the folks at Palgrave Macmillan. The series editor, Matthew J. Morgan, has expertise as an author and it’s obvious in his editing of this marvelous series. The series captures the thoughts of a number of the leading thinkers of our time regarding the impact of this dramatic attack on various domestic institutions and international and security policies. With contributions from the likes of R. James Woolsey, Jr., and Ambassador Marc Grossman, the book provides an excellent perspective for understanding and applying the lessons from this terrible tragedy.
