Books That Explore Security in Post-911 Era

Our awareness of national security and the agencies responsible for it changed after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. For young readers curious about how this often-secret world goes about its business, Enslow Publishers offers an age-appropriate, factually solid group of books on this topic.

Our new The Security Agencies of the United States book focuses on the dedicated men and women who often work in the shadows where threats against our country may emerge. Author Tom Streissguth's 104-page work explores the principal agencies, their unique roles, and their many challenges. The school/library price of this 104-page book is $24.95 (that's a 25% discount from Enslow's list price).

Meanwhile, for those curious about the world of espionage and high-tech intelligence work, author Susan K. Mitchell's six-book "The Secret World of Spies" series fills the bill. Each of these 48-page works offer easy, entertaining material that includes memorable true-crime stories, "secret" facts, and photographs that bring these cloak-and-dagger subjects to life. A library-bound edition of each book is available for $17.95; the price represents a 25% discount from Enslow's list price.

Young readers interested to learn more about the events of 9/11 itself can read Enslow's Remembering September 11, 2001: What We Know Now. Writer Mara Miller's skillfully written, factual 112-page overview of that dark day's events, its principal personalities, and the incidents' background, is both accessible and engaging. You can order this library-bound book from Enslow for $23.95; this represents a 25% school/library discount from our list price.
