The Day Wall Street Exploded

A Story of America in Its First Age of Terror

Beverly Gage

  • This is the first history of the 1920 bombing, published on the 90th anniversary of the attack.
  • Based in part on thousands of pages of never-before-analyzed Bureau of Investigation reports, the book reveals the inside story of the hunt for the perpetrators.
  • The book resonates on multiple levels with the most significant event of recent U.S. history—the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, particularly with regard to terrorism, civil liberties, immigration, and federal power.
