The Oklahoma City Bombing (Perspectives on Modern World History) By Diane Andrews Henningfeld (Editor) Cover Image


The Oklahoma City bombing was a heart-breaking, American safety-shattering event. This fascinating volume explores the historical and cultural events leading up to and following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. This book addresses issues surrounding the bombing, such as the identity of "John Doe No. 2," the media's possible misrepresentation of the militia movement's involvement, and whether Timothy McVeigh's confession was voluntary. Personal narratives are included from people impacted by the bombing, including a secretary trapped in the wreckage, a search-and-rescue worker, and a high school student who lost her father.
