A Bibliography For Properly Remembering 9-11

“Never Forget” is a cliche that was used to memorialize those lost on September 11, 2001. Unfortunately, those throwing around this cliche want history to begin on the day they died as a justification for the wars that followed. Those 3,000 lives are certainly worth memorializing because their death was preventable. The deaths of hundreds of thousands in the decade that followed were as well.

What follows is a bibliography on noninterventionist foreign policy. Most of these are history books. Reading about events and decisions will lead one to conclude that a central planner is as bad at war and foreign policy as they are at economic interventions.
