The purpose of Fordham Libraries' Research Guides is first and foremost to provide our patrons with access to information sources of value which are reliable, appropriately documented, and balanced on a broad array of topical areas. Given the at times extreme variance in perspectives taken by different stakeholders, September 11 as a Guide topic is much unlike the academic disciplines covered in our other Guides. Thus with respect to September 11, we want our patrons to be aware of the existence of and the expressed rationales behind these differing perspectives. Accordingly, this Guide points to published accounts, analyses, and viewpoints which are at times passionately opposed to each other. We present these differing perspectives dispassionately for you, our patrons, to take note of, consider, and judge the merits of for yourselves.
This extensive resource offers authoritative articles on significant events in history and includes extensive bibliographies for deeper exploration.
