About

Overview

The events of September 11, 2001, did more than set off the war on terror. Passionate support for—and opposition to—military intervention abroad, soaring budget deficits, expansion of domestic surveillance and policing, renewed debate regarding a military draft, and shifts in attitudes regarding immigration are just a few of the changes in American culture after the terrorist attacks.
