Longitudes and Attitudes: Exploring the World After September 11
by Thomas Friedman
Longitudes and Attitudes is made up of the columns Friedman has published about September 11, the most momentous news story of our time, as well as a diary of his private experiences and reflections during his reporting on the post-September 11 world, as the author travels from Afghanistan to Israel to Europe to Indonesia to Saudi Arabia. More than any other journalist writing, Friedman gives voice to America's awakening sense of a radically new world and our own complex place in it.
