Race and Arab Americans Before and After 9/11 by Amaney A. Jamal,Nadine Christine Naber Summary

Bringing the rich terrain of Arab American histories to bear on conceptualizations of race in the U.S., this groundbreaking volume fills a critical gap in the field of ethnic studies. Unlike most immigrant communities who either have been consistently marked as non-white, or have made a transition from non-white to white, Arab Americans historically have been rendered white and have increasingly come to be seen as non-white. This book highlights emergent discourses on the distinct ways that race matters to the study of Arab American histories and asks essential questions.

9/11 by David Simpson Summary

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, a general sense that the world was different—that nothing would ever be the same—settled upon a grieving nation; the events of that day were received as cataclysmic disruptions of an ordered world. Refuting this claim, David Simpson examines the complex and paradoxical character of American public discourse since that September morning, considering the ways the event has been aestheticized, exploited, and appropriated, while “Ground Zero” remains the contested site of an effort at adequate commemoration. In 9/11, Simpson argues that elements of the conventional culture of mourning and remembrance—grieving the dead, summarizing their lives in obituaries, and erecting monuments in their memory—have been co-opted for political advantage. He also confronts those who labeled the event an “apocalypse,” condemning their exploitation of 9/11 for the defense of torture and war. In four elegant chapters—two of which expand on essays originally published in the London Review of Books to great acclaim—Simpson analyzes the response to 9/11: the nationally syndicated “Portraits of Grief” obituaries in the New York Times; the debates over the rebuilding of the World Trade Center towers and the memorial design; the representation of American and Iraqi dead after the invasion of March 2003, along with the worldwide circulation of the Abu Ghraib torture photographs; and the urgent and largely ignored critique of homeland rhetoric from the domain of critical theory. Calling for a sustained cultural and theoretical analysis, 9/11 is the first book of its kind to consider the events of that tragic day with a perspective so firmly grounded in the humanities and so persuasive about the contribution they can make to our understanding of its consequences.

9/11 Culture by Jeffrey Melnick Summary

9/11 Culture serves as a useful introduction to the complexities of American culture in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. With a broad purview that includes film, music, literary fiction and other popular arts, the volume is designed for anyone interested in quietly probing how American cultural agents and audiences have "acted out" and "worked through" the national trauma of 9/11. Written in an accessible language, and unburdened by academic jargon, 9/11 Culture constructs a number of common-sense approaches for the study of all of the works of art--high, low, and in-between. Offering balanced examinations of a catalogue of artifacts culled from high (and low) culture--film, music, photos, memorials, comic strips, fiction, telethons, poetry--Melnick probes the silly as well as the superseding ways that 9/11 has exerted a shaping force on a wide range of practices, from the politics of femininity to the poetics of redemption. The ample pedagogical material--film- and discographies, introduction, and teachers preface--accompanying 9/11 Culture suggest to users the many ways one might begin tracking the cultural resonances of 9/11.

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, caused tremendous loss of life, property, and income, and the resulting response from public and private organizations was unprecedented.

9/11: Mental Health in the Wake of Terrorist Attacks by Yuval Neria,Raz Gross,Randall D. Marshall,Ezra S. Susser Summary

This book was first published in 2006. Does terrorism have a unique and significant emotional and behavioral impact among adults and children? In what way does the impact of terrorism exceed the individual level and affect communities and specific professional groups, and test different leadership styles? How were professional communities of mental health clinicians, policy-makers and researchers mobilized to respond to the emerging needs post disaster? What are the lessons learned from the work conducted after 9/11, and the implications for future disaster mental health work and preparedness efforts? Yuval Neria and his team are uniquely placed to answer these questions having been involved in modifying ongoing trials and setting up new ones in New York to address these issues straight after the attacks. No psychiatrist, mental health professional or policy-maker should be without this book.

Rights Vs. Public Safety After 9/11 by Robert H. Barnard Summary

Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, the tension between civil rights and public safety has dominated public discourse. On issues ranging from racial profiling to military tribunals, Americans have had to ask whether it is possible for the United States to defend itself against terrorism without violating the values and principles that lie at the heart of its democratic order. In Rights vs. Public Safety after 9/11, some of the nation's leading legal experts and social critics confront this question head-on. The contributors offer measured, often communitarian, approaches to topics such as the changes in United States immigration policy after September 11th, the practical and moral difficulties of racial profiling, the ethical dilemmas of an emergency response to a bioterrorist attack, and the role of the government in promoting national service. This balanced compilation of essays highlights where government will need to expand its authority in the fight against terrorism, where it risks overreaching, and how this new era might strengthen American society.

Macroeconomic Impacts of the 9/11 Attack by Bryan W. Roberts Summary

Evaluates the macroeconomic impacts of the 9/11 attack on U.S. real GDP growth and the unemployment rate by examining how forecasts of these variables were revised after the attack occurred. By this approach, the immediate impact of the 9/11 attack was to reduce real GDP growth in 2001 by 0.5%, and to increase the unemployment rate by 0.11% (reduce employment by 598,000 jobs). Forecasted real GDP growth in 2002 fell dramatically immediately after the 9/11 attack but then recovered fully. The forecasted unemployment rate in 2002 rose sharply immediately after the 9/11 attack, but unlike real GDP growth, it never subsequently returned to a pre-9/11 level. Illustrations. This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication.

THE POST-9/11 SYNDROME by DR. OLUYINKA TELLA Summary

This book investigated the relationship between the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the internationalization agenda of US colleges and universities. Three research questions were investigated, with two universities in the Miami-area of South Florida, one private and the other public, as qualitative case studies. Key findings included a progressive decline in Fall to Fall enrollment of international students at both institutions, where themes associated with the post-9/11 environment of international education as perceived by international education professionals were aggregated into 3(M)enaces, 3(T)rajectories, 3 (C)ontradictions and 1(D)ominance. As Dr. Michael Smithee stated in the foreword: “Dr. Tella adroitly lays out ... the effect the calumny of 9/11had on their personal and professional lives, as well as perspectives on institutional responses to the crisis...the initiated will find a camaraderie of experience and expression in the descriptions elicited...For the uninitiated... this book will bring a personal touch to those events.“ Given the immediate and long-term implications of this book for international student and scholar exchange, it is a must-read for anyone interested or currently involved in international work.
