2021 marks the twentieth anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the U.S. government’s subsequent “war on terror.” The articles in this symposium explore some of the ways the government’s response has changed American life and show that the costs of the war have been high and the consequences have been significant in areas including foreign relations, domestic policing, immigration policy, and domestic extremism.
