The Post September 11 Debate Over Empire, Globalization, and Fragmentation
Walter LaFeber proposes that the September 11 attacks resulted from processes of globalization that had begun a generation earlier. He explains that those processes triggered an uneven distribution of wealth and, especially, a decentralization of power that led to an attack on the United States by an individual, nonstate, terrorist group that utilized some of the most advanced methods provided by globalization technologies. The article uses these contexts to explore the Clinton and Bush administrations’ responses to the globalization/decentralization phenomena that climaxed in the September 11 tragedies.
