This large landscape-format book, exquisitely designed and produced, features remarkable photography by Spanish artist Francesc Torres, who was granted special access to visit JFK International Airport's Hangar 17. Hangar 17 became the repository for all significant non-human materials salvaged from the site of the World Trade Center after the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. With his lifelong interest in questions of human memory and meaning, Torres creates photographs that turn twisted steel or smashed ambulances into objects of contemplation and wonder. Accompanying his chilling photography are several pieces of writing that address the question of what place the memory of 9/11 will take in the history of the United States and the world. Newsweek senior editor Jerry Adler writes the primary text of the book, explaining how the remains of Ground Zero came to be carried to Hangar 17 and what happened to them there. Torres himself, at home in lower Manhattan on the morning of September 11, 2001, writes a memory piece on that day and his feelings in the presence of the twisted remains months later. Yale historian David Blight offers a piece on how 9/11 will reshape American history. The book also includes a statement by the curator of the forthcoming 9/11 Museum at the World Trade Center, where some of these pieces will be displayed.

Photographer Francesc Torres combines performance, photography, and video, creating works that question social order and the interactions between political and economic power. He is especially interested in the influence of memory on the present, which is his interest in the remains of 9/11. Torres' media projects have been included in solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum in New York; the Capp Street Project in San Francisco; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Gardens in Washington, D.C.; the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego; and in museums around the world, including Madrid, Mexico City, St. Petersburg, and Prague.

The Norte Grande of Chile, the world's driest desert, had ''engendered contemporary Chile, everything that was good about it, everything that was dreadful,'' writes Ariel Dorfman in his brilliant exploration of one of the least known and most exotic corners of the globe. For 10,000 years the desert had been mined for silver, iron, and copper, but it was the 19th-century discovery of nitrate that transformed the country into a modern state and forced the desert's colonization.

Archaeologists have never seen anything like it the deeper they dig, the more bizarre the scene becomes. Explorer joins an international team of experts as they reopen the earth to understand the violent events as they played out seven thousand years ago.
