Throughout history, wars and other catastrophes have produced mass destruction far greater than what occurred in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 on New York and Washington. Yet seldom has such a pervasive and all-encompassing shock been felt with the brutal and unprecedented '911'. Along with the tragic aspects, what might this 'global nightmare' have to say to us? What is there for us to acknowledge and what old and new wounds have been opened? What sort of a legacy has been left behind? These big questions and many more fact us now in the aftermath. In this book, the highly complex incident of 911 is circled and examined from many angles by a variety of writers who all share a wide experience in depth psychology. What might a psychotherapist perceive in this eruption of tragic contents?
