A bit more reading on September 11

There were a few books that did not make our display on "Understanding Our World After September 11." This was mostly due to space restrictions. I have decided to share some of those titles here with our readers in case they want some more things to read. This is a list of books we have here at the Library that did not make it to the display case. I did pull these books and look them over, so I can at least tell folks that they are worth a look. They are listed with their call numbers, but in no particular order. You can find these in the library's General Collection on the third floor :
  • Just War Against Terror: the Burden of American Power by Jean Bethke Elshtain (HV 6432 .E427 2004).
  • In the Wake of 9/11: the Psychology of Terror by Thomas A. Pyszczynski (HV 6432 .P97 2003).
  • What is Life Worth?: The Unprecedented Effort to Compensate the Victims of 9/11 by Kenneth R. Feinberg (KF 1328 .F45 2005).
  • Islam, Fundamentalism, and the Betrayal of Tradition: Essays by Western Muslim Scholars edited by Joseph E. Lumbard (BP 60 .I7848 2004).
  • Good Muslim, Bad Muslim: America, the Cold War, and the Roots of Terror by Mahmood Mamdani (E 840 .M346 2004).
  • Longitudes and Attitudes: the World in the Age of Terrorism by Thomas L. Friedman (HV 6432 .F75 2003B).
If readers have other suggestions of books that would be appropriate and/or relevant to this topic, please let us know in the comments. And if you need help finding these and other books, please feel free to stop by the reference desk or use our Ask-A-Librarian link on the library's website.
