Half price. Stunning images! A collection of images and words that documents the details of the disaster, exposes the feelings of people who are trying to put it into context and perspective, and calls for hope. A collection of personal testimonials, poems, essays, a 9-1-1 call log, photographs, and other contributions from people from all walks of life. Photos of the destruction, firefighters, rescue workers, volunteers and survivors confirm the bravery and determination that emerged in the face of fear. Although this particular book focuses on the events in New York City, it also speaks to the international scope of the tragedy and of the humanity that has risen up behind it. One of the more interesting aspects of this book is the inclusion of an essay by Noam Chomsky, noted for his decades of anti-American rhetoric. Some people argue that this one individual's essay cheapens the entire book, others feel that it adds a bit of historical perspective inside the mind of the anti-American zealot. I include it in an effort to provide as much balance as possible. Proceeds benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund which was established to ensure that the needs of the poor and lower-income victims of the WTC attack are met in both the immediate and the long term.
