The authors argue that the social and political project that is “9/11” can be found in most cultural artifacts produced after the date, including film.

The book examines our perceptions of reality after the events of September 11, 2001, as shown by one of the more influential means of cultural representation—Hollywood films"--provided by publisher."@en ;
