Illustrated throughout, the book discusses representation of 9/11 and the war on terror in Hollywood film, the 9/11 novel, mass media, visual art and photography, political discourse, and revisionist historical accounts of American empire, between the September 11 attacks and the Congressional midterm elections in 2006.

As well as prompting an international security crisis, and a crisis in international governance and law, David Holloway suggests the culture of the time also points to a crisis unfolding in the institutions and processes of republican democracy in the United States. His book offers a cultural and ideological history of the period, showing how culture was used by contemporaries to debate, legitimise, qualify, contest, or repress discussion, about the causes, consequences and broader meanings of 9/11 and the war on terror
