Críticas:

Susan Faludi, as always, is simply stunning. With heroic acuity, she digs through the mythological debris of the Bush era to recover the dark fairytale shades of white savagery on the early Frontier t hat founds the vengeance fantasy we call the 'war on terrorism. Mike Davis, author of "Ecology of Fear" No system has more completely failed us since 9/11 than the print and television media. The American public is too misinformed even to think of elementary oversight of its government. In painstaking and documented detail, Susan Faludi demonstrates that this was not just a matter of neglect but a failure of intent the Sean Hannitys, Diane Sawyers, and network anchors misled us in service of an ideological agenda. Her chapter on Jessica Lynch is a tour de force of how the military-journalistic complex works. You cannot find a more eye-opening book to read. Chalmers Johnson, au thor of the Blowback Trilogy. An important contribution to our understanding of the cultural and political reaction to 9/11, which shows how deeply ingrained beliefs about masculinity, femininity and sanctified violence have shaped our national identity, and our ways of responding to crisis. Richard Slotkin, author of "Gunfighter Nation: The Myth of the Frontier in T wentieth-Century America 220; When the viciously misogynist al Qaeda attacked America, the mainstream media responded, strangely enough, with a call for a revival of manly men, frail females, and traditional domesticity. In "The Terror Dream," our premiere cultural reporter exposesthe backlash and offers a fascinating explanation of why 9/11 led to such a perverse retreat from our own values. This is a book that had to be written, and only Susan Faludi could do it so brilliantly and engrossingly. Barbara Ehrenreich, author of "Nickel and Dimed" In this bold and courageous book, Susan Faludi peels away the veneer of post-9/11 bravado to expose our collective national psyche, bringing us face to face with our nation's innermost fea rs and fantasies. "The Terror Dream" unmasks the Lone Rangers running our nation and their loyal media Tontos who hark back to a mythic frontier where men were men and women were victims. Faludi shows how the revival of these myths since 9/11 has made us weaker and less secure, and the world a more dangerous place. Elaine Tyler May, author of "Homeward Bound: American Families in the Cold War Era" If you are wondering what's come over America since 9/11, this is the book you've been waiting for. "The Terror Dream" does for 9/11 and its effects what "Backlash" did for women in the 90s. Once again, Susan Faludi combines her unparalleled gifts for research, re porting and, of course, great writing, with an arresting and wholly original thesis. Katha Pollitt, author of "Virginity or Death!: And Other Socia l and Political Issues of Our Time" Blistering and brilliant, "The Terror Dream" is cultural criticism at its best. Peter Biskind "Susan Faludi is an eloquent researcher and a remarkable journalist whose response to social crisis is invariably shrewd and original. Now she givesus a work of eye-opening documentation of how American culture, instead of being changed by 9/11, has absorbed it into its own mythic sense of self. "The Terror Dream" is a bold, brave book that joins the literature of dissent during one of the most dangerous, flag-waving moments in American history. Vivian Gornick

"Susan Faludi [is] a relentless reporter, an unapologetic feminist, and a brilliant scourge. . . . Feminism, like a trampoline, has made possible this splendid provocation of a book, levitating to keep company with Hunter Thompson's fear and loathing, Leslie Fielder's love and death, and Edmund Wilson's patriotic gore."--John Leonard, "The New York Times Book Review
""Faludi has once again described the pushback, the demand to retain the straitjacketed roles that tell us what a man and a woman should be. With a rigorous insistence on truth, not comforting stories, Faludi proposes we can still awaken from the terror dream."--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "Fresh Air"

Reseña del editor:

It has become clear over the years that the reaction of America's politicians and media to the attacks of 9/11 was bizarrely misdirected and dangerous to our national security. But no one has fully probed its cultural roots. Until now. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Susan Faludi brilliantly demonstrates how our culture's seemingly inexplicable response was actually a reflex set centuries deep in the American grain. Her analysis of what went on in the months and years after 9/11 will shock even those who thought they knew the full measure of that tragedy (as her account of the post-9/11 media marketing of flight-suit superheroes, cowering "security moms," Jessica-Lynchesque helpless "girls," and Daniel Boone-wannabe politicians will outrage and amuse).

A masterwork of historical interpretation and a Rosetta stone for deciphering the ongoing spectacle of American politics, journalism, and culture, The Terror Dream flushes from hiding a forceful dynamic that disfigures our lives even in times of normalcy, and that, unless it is confronted, will send us reeling in a wrong direction the next time tragedy strikes.
