This is book number 30 in the Historic Documents of .... series.
The 2001 edition features a selection of the hundred of documents and statements that developed from the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. and later in other locations. It also includes the most important material flowing from the U.S. government's declaration of "war" on terrorism and the subsequent military and diplomatic actions.
Documents are tightly edited, arranged chronologically and include Web addresses in most cases for readers who need the full text. Readers will find easy access to material through a detailed table of contents and a cumulative five-year index that directs a person to related material in earlier volumes.
