Synopsis: Traces the history and current situation of relations between the United States and the Middle East, discussing the attacks of September 11 and the Iraq wars.
From Booklist: Reviewed with Culture Clash/Media Demons.
Gr. 9-12. Titles in the timely Defeating Terrorism/Developing Dreams series offer intellectually challenging, provocative essays that address the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S., the subsequent "war on terrorism," and the current conflict in Iraq. The 10 essays in Culture Clash explore the cultural aspects of the war on terrorism and the second Gulf War, including America's lack of understanding about Islamic nations. One essay looks at the media's bias in reporting these conflicts and how the stories help shape public opinion. Trade Towers focuses on the impact that the 9/11 attacks and the Iraq War have had on various aspects of American society, including the economy and popular culture. A few of the essays consider the history of conflict between Iraq and the U.S. The selections, authored by college and university professors, address complex economic, political, and sociological issues that most young adult readers will find very challenging. The audience for these books is likely to be motivated high-school students who have a particular interest in the subject. Ed Sullivan
