Editorial Reviews

“It’s hard to imagine a more vital and absorbing subject than the one treated by a wide variety of thinkers in this volume. The impact of 9/11 will take years to comprehend in a full and appropriate way. Matthew J. Morgan has performed a heroic task here, assembling these essays that range over a vast array of topics related to the impact of this cataclysmic day on the interlocking worlds of media, arts, and entertainment. I learned so much from these essays, and I strongly recommend this collection to all serious readers.”--Jay Parini, D. E. Axinn Professor of English & Creative Writing, Middlebury College “With a cadre of contributing writers as distinguished as they are diverse, this collection provides the most expansive assessment I’ve yet seen of American culture’s seemingly bottomless capacity to reinvent itself in the face of catastrophe. Whether or not you believe that 9/11 was ‘the day that changed everything,’ you will think differently about our national narrative after reading this book.”--Dana Heller, Professor and Director of the Humanities Institute, Old Dominion University, and editor of The Selling of 9/11 “An outstanding and timely volume analyzing the role of narrative in the time of war, the impact of images, and the sway of soft power in framing synoptic epistemologies. The diverse essays present a fresh range of perspectives examining how the tragic events of 9/11 have transformed media and entertainment and how, in turn, media and entertainment have shaped our views of 9/11 and its aftermath.”--John Tehranian, Professor of Law and Director, Entertainment Law Center, Chapman University, and author of Whitewashed: America's Invisible Middle Eastern Minority  “With wisdom of hindsight and international perspectives, this book brings together a diverse set of authors who show how important stories, media, and the arts have been to our understanding of 9/11 and the formation of post-9/11 ways of depicting the world.”--Lynn Spigel, Frances E. Willard Professor of Screen Cultures, School of Communication at Northwestern University
