When Richard Clarke's AGAINST ALL ENEMIES vaulted in to the public arena, an instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and media sensation, it changed the debate about the war on terror. his revelations about the Bush administration's inattention to the threat to terrorism pre-9/11, and his stinging critique of the impact on terrorism of the war on Iraq, made front-page headlines. It is no wonder the White House went into full attack mode. Yet as the extraordinary reviews attest, AGAINST ALL ENEMIES is far more than simply a book about a single moment in time. It is both the most authoritative history of America's twenty-year struggle with terrorism, and a timeless memoir revealing how the US government really works. Now with a new foreword discussing recent events in the war on terror, and the West's continuing struggle to respond, AGAINST ALL ENEMIES is set to sell for many years to come.

Publishers Weekly, 2004-05-03 A few bars of heavy, ominous-sounding orchestral music set the tone for this incendiary account of the events that occurred inside the White House on 9/11 and the months and years prior to it. Former counterterrorism director Clarke starts out by describing how he took charge in the situation room on the day of the attacks and facilitated communication among the White House, the FBI and the FAA. The level of detail Clarke includes is impressive. Not only does he paint a vivid portrait of the White House in crisis mode, but he even recalls a number of conversations (including one in which Bush, after learning of al Qaeda's involvement, purportedly tells Clarke, "See if Saddam did this. See if he's linked in any way"). Whether one chooses to believe Clarke's version of events or not, this first chapter is riveting, and Clarke delivers it like a pro. With his deep tenor and weighty pauses, Clarke never lets listeners forget the gravity of the situation, but he isn't above making an attempt at the various accents and inflections of the major players. His frustration over how the current administration has responded to 9/11 and how he believes the FBI and CIA failed to act leaks through at times, but by the end of this compelling audiobook, many listeners may share it.
