Patrick Daley is a Heinemann-Raintree author.From Booklist:
Gr. 4-7. This compact book does an excellent job of explaining the terrorist attacks on September 11, but equally important is its presentation of the background that led to the events. Lalley begins as planes fly into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and crash into a field in Pennsylvania. With alacrity, he goes on to explore previous terrorist attacks against the U.S and the reasons behind them, the war in Afghanistan, and the history of the World Trade Center. He also looks ahead at the impact of terrorism in the U.S., and relates two personal stories from Ground Zero. The most interesting, and potentially controversial, part is the chapter about Islam; careful and politically correct, Lalley pulls no punches about the Islamic radicals involved. In addition, he presents good information about problems in the Middle East, though a mention of the Holocaust as a reason for the establishment of a Jewish state might have been helpful. Because this focuses largely on events within a specific time frame, it won't date too quickly. The color photos are crisp though sometimes small. A list of Web sites and a very brief bibliography round out the text. Ilene Cooper
