Blackwell North Amer
A Nation Challenged records the full range of events from the moment of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to the anthrax scare, the war in Afghanistan, the quick fall of the Taliban and efforts to build a nation in a war-torn land of hungry people, feuding tribal warlords and a fragile transitional government. The result, based on the prize-winning daily special section of The Times, is a moving and authoritative volume that captures a historic period of change. It revives the powerful emotions first evoked by these events, while providing new insight into how they have changed our nation and our times.
