11 and Beyond
Terrorism Trap is a richly informed, powerfully argued, well written analysis
of the deeper causes and meaning of September 11. Michael Parenti dissects
the religious, political, and economic forces behind the attacks, putting
them in proper historical perspective, which includes an understanding
of Afghanistan’s hidden history. He answers such questions as: why did
September 11 happen? who is to be blamed? who is taking advantage of the
crisis? who is hurt by all the ensuing events? And why do they hate us?
He sees the religious terrorism of today as related to a longstanding
religious tradition of violence as well as being a reaction to a US-led
globalization process that has impoverished and angered much of the world.
This book helps us understand what is to be done to save democracy from
terrorism and reactionism.
