This is a collection of interdisciplinary essays that examines the historical, political, and social significance of 9/11. This collection considers 9/11 as an event situated within the much larger historical context of late late-capitalism, a paradoxical time in which American and capitalist hegemony exist as pervasive and yet under precarious circumstances. Contributors to this collection examine the ways in which 9/11 changed both everything and, at the same time, nothing at all. They likewise examine the implications of 9/11 through a variety of different media and art forms including literature, film, television, and street art.

"In the middle of this mayhem, G. Fragopoulos and L. Naydan present an interesting edited book, which invites well-read and reputed scholars coming from different disciplines and stripes. ... all chapters integrated in this must-read book, which is highly recommendable for scholars and policy makers interested in themes of terrorism, are orchestrated to stimulate further discussions around the "aesthetic of terrorism" and its intersection on our capitalist culture, a moot-point, which will deserve further scrutiny in the years to come." (Maximiliano E. Korstanje, International Journal of Safety and Security in Tourism Hospitality, 2017)
