Pearson Education, Limited, 2002 - History - 266 pages
September 11, 2001. A day that shook the world and left thousands dead in the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon, and in the Pennsylvania countryside. This book serves as a testament to those who lost their lives, those who fought to save them, and to those who are endeavoring to rebuild. The guiding principle in assembling these images was one of documenting scenes of endurance and resolve. Finding the pictures that capture courage and fortitude in the heat and dust. All royalties from this book will be donated to AIDFund and AIDFund for America, along with additional contributions from Reuters and from Pearson, the book's publishers. Reuters has the largest news agency network in the world and is recognized as one of the leading providers of text and video news and news pictures. With some 2,500 journalists, photographers, and cameramen on the spot all over the world, Reuters captures images and covers stories as they break. This book is a collection of some of the most memorable and dramatic images of the events of September 11 and its aftermath, both from the U.S. and from around the world. From a huge collection of reportage we have tried to bring together coverage of these world-changing events into a record both disturbing and inspirational in its impact. This book is also about making a contribution, both personally and financially, to disaster relief and to the ongoing task of rebuilding communities and restoring confidence. In buying this book you are making a contribution to both AIDFund and AIDFund to America. AIDFund, established by Reuters Foundation, provides immediate funding to help charities and relief organizations around the globe respond rapidly in times of disaster. AIDFund for America responds specifically to the human loss and suffering in the United States following the events of September 11. All donations to both charities go to disaster relief: nothing is spent on administration.
