In this book, Dominic Streatfeild describes the experiences of ordinary people in the wake of 9/11, to reveal the far-reaching impact of that clear September morning.

Expertly combining history, biography and investigative journalism, Streatfeild zeros in on innocent men, women and children around the world - an immigrant gas station proprietor in Texas, an Afghan family preparing for a wedding, an Egyptian-German citizen pulled aside at the Macedonian border, a group of refugees bound for Australia - to illustrate the often devastating effects of the American response to 9/11 and the War on Terror.

Streatfeild shows how the sleep of reason in successive US administrations has brought forth the monsters of extraordinary rendition, Guantanamo Bay, extrajudicial execution and wholesale contravention of international law. The resulting book informs as it entertains and induces outrage, even as it inspires. It is an unforgettable account of how the course of history changed radically at the beginning of a new millennium.
