The spasms of 9/11
Somewhere at the back of our minds is the knowledge that stunned us on 9/11 — knowledge about how America is seen, about how our democracies are vulnerable, and about what we are capable of at our very best — or worst — individually and collectively.

ILIJA TROJANOW and RANJIT HOSKOTE´ write about it all.
