📒9 11 Memorial Visions ✍ Lester J. Levine
📝9 11 Memorial Visions Book Synopsis : More than a billion people watched the 9/11 World Trade Center destruction unfold on television, making it the greatest shared event in world history. Reflecting this fact, the 2003 World Trade Center Memorial Design Competition was open to anyone, drawing 5,201 entries from 60 countries, all of which were posted online. Most designs were the greyscale hardscape of typical memorials. A few were radically imaginative. Some engaged memory with sound, color, movement, technology or visitor participation. Others reached across the globe, cyberspace, even outer space. These imaginings stirred questions about their creators. Who were they? What were they thinking and feeling? How did the concept develop? This book, based on a first ever review of the entries, tells the personal stories of more than 180 designers whose creative perspective translated an horrific event, giving deeper thought to the relation of memorial spaces to history, geography, technology and cultural diversity.
📒Divided We Stand ✍ Eric Darton
📝Divided We Stand Book Synopsis : When the World Trade Towers in New York City were erected at the Hudson’s edge, they led the way to a real estate boom that was truly astonishing. Divided We Stand reveals the coming together and eruption of four volatile elements: super-tall buildings, financial speculation, globalization, and terrorism. The Trade Center serves as a potent symbol of the disastrous consequences of undemocratic planning and development.This book is a history of that skyscraping ambition and the impact it had on New York and international life. It is a portrait of a building complex that lives at the convergence point of social and economic realities central not only to New York City but to all industrial cities and suburbs. A meticulously researched historical account based on primary documents, Divided We Stand is a contemporary indictment of the prevailing urban order in the spirit of Jane Jacobs’s mid-century classic The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

📒The Twin Towers Trilogy ✍ Sal Umana
📝The Twin Towers Trilogy Book Synopsis : " Sal Umana is a psychotherapist and minister who directed a counseling center in New York City for the past thirty years. After the attack on the World trade Center on 9/11/01, Sal imagines God coming to him and asking who was the God everyone was talking about? God is very upset because He is not the God of the Al Quaeda suicide bombers, nor is he the God of the President's "Infinite Justice" in whose name George Bush "declares war on terrorism." (?!?) Sal, the therapist, spends four months in weekly therapy sessions in which it turns out that the God we all grew up with never really existed. Instead, God turns out to be the Eternal Spirit of Love, and not the Tribal Imperialist God of domination and vengeance of traditional religions. This became the first book of the trilogy, "The Day God Died", and was published in 2002. Since God was no longer the Almighty Big Person with an Omnipotent Ego, what was Sal doing with an Ego? So he did another course of therapy/self-analysis, called "The Day My Ego Died". Sal comes to the realization that we are not individual Egos, but part of the Oneness of Being, including God, ourselves, and all of reality. This is Zen, existential psychotherapy, Christian mysticism, and Buddhist Awakening all blended together. Finally, for the tenth anniversary of 9/11/01, Sal completes his Trilogy with "Back To Earth/ A Spirituality For the Age of Terrorism." In this third book, Sal teaches us the difference between "I " and "we," Ego and Love, life and death, and time and eternity. In these three volumes, Sal dispenses a lifetime of learning from psychotherapy, meditation, and ministry that can help the reader negotiate the anxiety of the age of terrorism."
