'The best overview of the 9/11 decade in print' Economist

'Indispensable, fact-rich, extraordinarily authoritative and winningly opinionated . . . people will be arguing about this punchy narrative in 100 years' time' Herald

Over the last decade much of the world has seen invasions, bombings, battles and terror. Hundreds of thousands of people have died. These are the 9/11 Wars, and Jason Burke's book, based on first-hand experience of the conflict's key moments, has been hailed as the definitive account of the era. Using on-the-ground reporting and interviews with refugees, rioters, militants and ministers, he cuts through the myths and propaganda to show the our times in a wholly new light.

'Pacy, well-researched, and packed with telling anecdotes' Sunday Telegraph

'He talks to the right academics, the right spooks, but also to anyone willing to explain themselves, mullahs or market traders, soldiers as well as generals, even suicide bombers who changed their minds at the last minute . . . Remarkable' Scotsman

'A magisterial history of the last decade' Guardian
