The 9/11 Wars

LSE public lecture

Throughout the 1990s a vast conflict was brewing. Jason Burke was a first-hand witness of many of the conflict's key moments, and he cuts through the myth and debunks the screaming headlines to reveal the reality for those ordinary people whose lives have changed forever. Drawing together the complex and chaotic events of this vast conflict, Jason Burke explains this still ongoing war and outlines the course it is likely to take in the years to come.

In 15 years as a foreign correspondent for the Guardian and Observer, Jason Burke has reported on many of the key events in the Middle East and South Asia. He is the author of two widely praised books, Al-Qaeda and On the Road to Kandahar, the former of which is widely recognised as the first book to accurately asses the terrorist group. His latest book The 9/11 Wars is published by Penguin.
