Without Precedent (2006)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Aug 15, 2006; Writers: Lee H. Hamilton, Thomas H. Kean; Genre: Nonfiction; Publisher: Knopf

The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission recount the group's work, focusing largely on its investigation and the balancing of competing interests: victims' families, the White House, Congress, the intelligence community, and the general public. Target Audience Wonks and 9/11 completists. Worth It? Without Precedent is mostly dry but deeply informative work that should be read alongside the commission's report.
