9 of 1: Library Journal Review




Book Review

Recommended:

In this educational work, Chin explores a variety of reactions to the 9/11 attacks through the device of a group of fictional high school students assigned to interview people, whose backgrounds are different from their own, about the attacks and their aftermath. A businessman talks about the friend he lost in the World Trade Center, an Afghan woman speaks of repression under the Taliban, a Japanese American remembers internment during World War II, a Russian ex-soldier remembers the disastrous campaign he fought in Afghanistan, and so on.

With a set of discussion questions for each chapter, this book is designed for use in schools, and Chin provides students with a wide variety of viewpoints on world affairs, giving some important historical background...this is a commendable effort: by putting these views in the mouths of ordinary people, Chin brings large issues into personal focus and provides a useful teaching tool. Recommended for schools and for young adult collections.
