This book, however, proposes that while the attacks on US homeland were unprecedented, the ensuing discourse of President G.W. Bush and his 'war on terror' campaign cannot be said to constitute a radical departure. The book aims to show that President Bush's statements and actions since 9/11 belong within a broader unfolding discourse of the 'New World Order', which has been underway since the end of the Cold War.
