In 'The Terror Dream', the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Backlash and Stiffed offers her analysis of the mind of America after 9/11. As she mentions early on, this book is about a facet of the country?s response to the tragedy, a reaction that ?provoked reflexes barely concealed beneath [our] usual decorum.? She reveals how conservative interests used the terrible events of that morning in 2001 to orchestrate a backlash against what they saw as a feminist agenda to emasculate the American male and sounded a call to return to the more traditional role of the male rescuer and the female victim, even though the reality was quite different, and how most of the mainstream (and even the so called left-leaning) media went along the ride without so much as a thought. Insightful, bold, courageous, and written in her trademark elegant prose, this volume combines cultural criticism along with a scathing dissection of the American media and political life that unearths a society grappling with baffling contradictions.

This book is really incredible, I would and have recommended it to everyone. Susan Faludi is brilliant and has really done her research!
