A short text (68 pages) that puts the tragic events of 9/11 into political context. The focus is on how the American political system will respond to the challenges posed by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The author is interested in how the major institutions, such as the Presidency, the Congress, and our system of civil liberties and rights is changing to respond to this challenge. The book is well grounded in historical context as well, considering how other major crises have been handled. Other areas typically covered in an American government course, such as the media, religion, and public opinion are emphasized as well. Free when bundled.
