This new addition to the Perspectives on Modern World History series explores the historical and cultural events leading up to and following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. The text addresses issues surrounding the bombing, such as the identity of "John Doe No. 2," the media's possible misrepresentation of the militia movement's involvement, and whether Timothy McVeigh's confession was voluntary. Personal narratives from people impacted by the bombing -- including a secretary trapped in the wreckage, a search-and-rescue worker, and a high school student who lost her father -- are featured.
