Summary:
This book locates the origins of 9/11 in an increasingly globalized security context of the early post-Cold War period. In particular, the book seeks to illuminate the connection between the disastrous U.S.-UN humanitarian intervention in Somalia in 1992-1994 and the emergence of a permissive security environment that ultimately made the events of September 11 possible.
