Many people remember where they were and what they were doing on September 11, 2001. It was the day the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked. The attacks were devastating and cost the lives of thousands of people. This book sets its focus on why the attacks happened, what motives lay behind the attacks and what consequences they have had.
Readers are actively involved in the work of understanding the historic events by, among other things, producing their own interactive book on the subject, writing articles, producing films and carrying out source analyses.
The book is designed to be used at several educational levels in history classes in upper secondary or high school, as well as further education colleges and adult education centres, or in interdisciplinary courses and projects related to the topics of conflict, the Middle East, the West and terrorism.
By working through the book, the reader will achieve an insight into how actual events like the September 11 attacks can be viewed in a larger historical context with regard to time and place.
