BBC Four - Maps: Power, Plunder and Possession, Windows on the World Sorry, this episode is not currently available Jerry Brotton shows how maps can be tools of power and snapshots of history. Henry VIII's maps of the British coast helped him exert control over the world. Show more In a series about the extraordinary stories behind maps, Professor Jerry Brotton uncovers how maps aren't simply about getting from A to B, but are revealing snapshots of defining moments in history and tools of political power and persuasion. Visiting the world's first known map, etched into the rocks of a remote alpine hillside 3, 000 years ago, Brotton explores how each culture develops its own unique, often surprising way of mapping. As Henry VIII's stunning maps of the British coastline from a bird's-eye view show, they were also used to exert control over the world. During the Enlightenment, the great French Cassini dynasty pioneered the western quest to map the world with greater scientific accuracy, leading also to the British Ordnance Survey. But these new scientific methods were challenged by cultures with alternative ways of mapping, such as in a Polynesian navigator's map which has no use for north, south and east. As scientifically accurate map-making became a powerful tool of European expansion, the British carved the state of Iraq out of the Middle East. When the British drew up Iraq's boundaries, they had devastating consequences for the nomadic tribes of Mesopotamia.

Windows on the World, despite the fact that it takes place in the weeks following the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York, is a film that is urgently for our time. It is a hero's journey of a son trying to find his father in that grief-stricken landscape and the characters stand in for the millions of immigrants, legal and illegal, who contribute in their everyday lives, to the American landscape. The film seeks to counter the narrative that's all-too-prevalent in today's political and media landscape by telling a story set in America's biggest and most diverse city, at its darkest time. The script by playwright and novelist Robert Mailer Anderson (who also produced the film) is wise and completely engaging; he creates indelible characters who are ultimately inspiring and uplifting. Edward James Olmos gives what he considers to be the performance of a lifetime, and the rest of the cast is terrific as well-with a special shout-out to Glynn Turman. The direction, by Olmos's son Michael, is sure-handed, getting terrific performances from his cast, including his father, in this father-son story, and it's beautifully lensed. The music, including jazz and a title track written by Anderson, is pitch-perfect, supporting the story without getting in the way. This film should be seen by everybody-and I'm sure it will be in mainstream distribution soon, as this is a time when, although the major studios may have turned their backs on substance, terrific indie films like this one have many other possible venues. If you can't see it at a film festival, like I did, keep a keen eye out for it. Terrific and inspiring.

Window washers: HELP SAVE US. PLEASEEEE. People down on the ground: Grabs out phones. Average rating 3. 62 · 3, 236 ratings 137 reviews | Start your review of Windows on the World We know that none of the 1, 344 people trapped on the nineteen floors above survived. Obviously, this piece of information removes any element of suspense from this book. So much the better: this isn’t a thriller; it is simply an attempt—doomed, perhaps—to describe the indescribable. One of my reading resolutions for 2018 is to complete all of the past winners of the two premier prizes for literature in English translation - the Best Translated Book Award from the US and the Independent Foreign.. I couldn't decide on what star rating to give this. This is, at once, the most horribly self-indulgent book I've ever read, and one of the most insightful looks into today that I've ever seen. The author is an asshole, who blends himself with the fictional character constantly. But I've been reading a ton of French philosophy and perspectives on America recently. He's drawing a lot of it from that. This book is an attempt at the hyperreal novel. Where fiction becomes more real than reality. What.. Windows on the World is quite a depressing piece of French literature at times because of its subject matter, but it captures New York around the boom pre-9/11 perfectly, and its characters feel just like real people, making the book all the more powerful and memorable. This book introduced me to several issues I had never thought of regarding the WTC attack on 9/11. First off, I did not know that the people who were stuck in the floors above the level where the plane entered were stuck there for 2 hours before the tours collapsed. I also did not know there were no attempts to rescue them (thru helicopter, for example). So, this book deals with the sinister story of what might have happened to these people. And of course, this being Beigbeder, he also deals.. One of the disadvantages of preoccupying yourself seriously with writing is that the techniques start to shine through the art of the text, and you are constantly taken out of the fictional world the writer is trying to embed you in. I once heard a typographer complain that he could never watch period dramas because they always got the fonts wrong. I guess it's a little like that. Reading Murakami recently, arguably my favourite author once upon a time, I had a feeling of being cheated. I felt,.. A bit annoying in the beggining because of all the Anti-american talk, but after you pass that part, I found something incredible. A realistic technique of writing brought me tears. They call it fiction novel, but it's full of reality. They could've been saved and no one reacted. They were left to die in horrible torture and this most certainly is not fiction anymore. Everything is amazingly illustrated in words. If you want the book to have a bigger impact, i also suggest watching some.. It came back to me recently that I had read this book at some point in the last -- hmmm, I'm going to say 5-6 years; and it appears I never added or reviewed it here. I just read a bunch of others' reviews, and am reminded how the book slips back and forth between a modern-day examination of America by a Frenchman, and a fictionalized story of a father and his two sons who are visiting New York and having breakfast at the Windows on the World restaurant at the top of the North Tower when the.. Definitely a YES! I remember reading Beigbeder when I was a teen & when new dandyism was the actual trend in Paris… I was cut between hating his view on life -cynical, alcoholic, boho- and it's incredible quality on writing. But now, ten years later, it's a revelation: what kind of delicious character is that Beigbeder! He makes me think of Rousseau in the Confessions "total narcissism hidden on a sort of self indulgence, unbearable but so attractive! " I don't know if it was that book (the.. I read this book three years ago and all I remember is the description of a couple having sex while the building starts to collapse. Unnecessary provocation IMHO. Apparently this is the way a French person deals with trauma... Oh I'm sorry is it a stereotype? Well, kinda well deserved! Loved it. Beautiful and honest view of life. Amazing book. The best line: kids just want to eat, adults just want to fuck (but in spanish) Windows on the World Windows on the Plane. Windows on the Crash. Windows on the Smoke. BROKEN WINDOWS Read it in the original French a few years back in school. Hated it and loved it and back and forth as it went along. French author Frederic Beigbeder's novel "Windows on the World" has certainly garnered quite a wide range of reviews as posted on AmazonUSA. I came to this novel relatively late; six years after its initial publication in French and subsequent translation to English for sale in the US and the UK. I have never been able to read a work of fiction about the attacks of September 11th, 2001. I start them - and most are very good - but can never seem to stick with the book after the first chapter or.. This book was so eye opening for me. I know a lot about 9/11 I’ve seen so many documentaries on it, and yet I still learnt more throughout this book. The story goes into horrifying detail about what it would be like to be trapped in the tower, through the heat, the smells, the panic; it all felt so real. The words and phrases he uses to describe it really did make me feel like I had a sense of what it would be like to be trapped there. If you have been through a similar experience like this or.. This is quite possibly the most arrogant, pompous book I've ever read. How you can possibly make a book about the 9/11 attacks about you I have no idea but this book managed it and good god I did not enjoy it. There were parts that peaked my interest but they were overshadowed by the main character (who seems very much like the author himself) who I wanted to punch at almost ALL times. **SPOILERS** Also, the author somehow manages to put a chapter about him masturbating JUST before one of the.. I'm not sure what to do with this book. It's an uncomfortable read, but totally necessary. Not so much for the fictional story that unfolds inside-- the unlucky people trapped in the North Tower of the World Trade Center are basically stock characters: the self-absorbed, hedonistic divorced dad (of course he's a Texan! ) who is a shitty father to his two spoiled little hellions; the awful high-powered stock brokers carrying on an extra-marital affair. I never really bought any of them as.. While this book was pretty interesting, it wasn't as good as I'd hoped it'd be. It's my first read by Beigbeder, and I am a little dissapointed. What bothered me most was that Beigbeder felt the need to have two POVs in this book: one of an American, divorced fathern, Carhtex Yorston, who took his children up the Twin Towers at the moment of the attack, and then his own, one year later, in a restaurant in Paris. He must've felt like his own voice was a necessary addition to his book - it wasn't... "I do not know why I decided to write this book. Maybe because I saw no interest in writing about anything else. What else to write about? The only interesting subjects are the ones that are taboo. We have to write what is forbidden. '' Brutal, easy, hyperreal, and officially one of the best things I've read so far. I could go on about how great this novel is but, first of all, it's 9/11 and second, I guess that much can be deduced by the opening line: ''You know how it ends: everybody dies. '' If.. I read several reviews comparing this book to Ian McEwan's Saturday and Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. All address September 11 or its aftermath in some way. I planned to read all three. I got through Windows and Saturday, but could not get past chapter one of Extremely Loud. This book was published in France well over a year before the translation was available in the U. S. It caused quite an uproar, undeservedly in my opinion. What I find most interesting about.. This was: a very good (but imperfect) book. It does some cool things with form- one chapter for every minute from when the plane hit the first tower to when it collapsed. It has a compelling critique of capitalism and US Imperialism that suddenly goes soft at the end - but perhaps that’s partly excused because of when it was published (relatively soon after the attacks)? The ending is bad and kind of hokey. Still, I highly recommend it. I'm still not quite sure what I think about this book. The chapters run minute by minute, and alternate between the thoughts of the gentleman who is trapped in the north tower with his young boys, and the thoughts of the Author.... I found this a bit distracting. That being said, this book managed to both break my heart, and make me chuckle. Not an easy feat considering the subject matter! I'm glad I read this, it's very different. The idea I liked and found in this book: the break in the life of generation. Generation of 50-a, 60-s, 80-s, 90-s. All of them have their own story. It form their personality, it makes them to be different. What is the break of 2000 generation? Does the collapse of American world contributed to the change of our picture of the world. I amn’t sure. less offended by the subject matter (recreating last hour of 9/11 atop WTC) or even the jokey tone - than the piss-poor quality of the prose itself this is a really shitty book, irrespective of its 'transgressive' nature more evidence that the degeneration of the Arts is pandemic (Windows won the Prix Interallie) This book is an unique addition to the dozens of things written on 9/11. It is different--I like it. It is written from two very different people who live countries apart and I think this is what makes it stand apart from other things I've read. It is interesting that the author puts in his own opinions here and there. Sometimes it's a bit unnecessary and a bit a whole, though, nice! One must be shameless to write such a book. Beigbeder is and I respect (admire? ) that. The novel is both a tribute to 9/11 victims and an European tribute to American pop culture. Great references to linger, Hemingway, B. and many more, including also musicians and directors. The generation of '2001' truly is a beautiful catastrophe. Have you imagined what it would be like if you were on the top of the World Trace Center during the 9/11 Attacks? Neither had I. This book will take you there. I had never read anything like it and I absolutely loved this book, as devastating as it may be! Fell in love with this book, I found that the author did a great job of getting into the characters' heads and portrayed the events quite realistically as if we(the readers)were there witnessing the horrors with our own eyes and smelling our own flesh burning. I'm like... depressed that I even read 100 pages of this book. Terrible, flat, uninteresting.

Windows on the world logo. The Windows On The World restaurant located in the North Tower of the WTC demonstrated how life and death can sometimes be decided on a razor thin wire of chance. In rare cases, one small change to a persons circumstances can significantly change the course or outcome of an event. The details of this decision-incident can often remain completely hidden to all the individuals involved until the event is completely over. Only then does the clear picture begin to unfold. WTC North Tower – September 11th – Slim Chance Between Life and Death. In this terrible tragedy, the North Tower, also known as 1 World Trade Center had it the worst. Not only was it the first building to be hit by one of the planes, but it was also the last building to fall. It was the only building that had all its fire stairs knocked out, that meant no-one above air strike on the 92nd floor ever got out and there would be no escape for its trapped occupants, where they would forced to witness the increasing carnage around them with their own slow realization of their ultimate demise. The Hijacked Planes Strike On September 11th 2001 at 8:46:26 a. m. American Airlines Flight 11 Boeing 767 impacted the north side of the North Tower of 1 World Trade Center. The plane entered the North Tower between the 94th and 98th floors. Flight 11 was flying at a speed of 490 miles per hour at the time of impact. North Tower occupants had no clue what was about to happen and they had no chance of survival from above the impact site, because, unlike the South Tower that was hit a few minutes later, all the fire escapes were destroyed by the impact of the plane. Documented accounts of human losses that morning at the North Tower at The World Trade Center included employees from such companies as Aon Corp, Cantor Fitzgerald and Marsh & McLennan. One particular company, Risk Waters Group Ltd, A British company, was at The Windows On The World conference facility that morning, they would not normally have been there. Windows On The World – Background On This Most Famous Restaurant Windows On The World was a world famous 40, 000 square foot restaurant near the top of the North tower on the 107th Floor at 1 World Trade Center. It boasted a popular “New American” style menu and had a first class wine list that included Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1928 for $3000. 00. The 107th floor was also occupied by “The Greatest Bar on Earth”, aka GBOE. This 13, 000 square foot happy hour bar was popular with tourists and Wall Street types alike. It was a traditional for New Yorkers to often complain about its “poor quality” and “expensive” drinks, but its location spoke volumes with amazing panoramic views of Manhattan and the tri-state area that was pretty hard to beat. The 107th floor was also occupied by Wild Blue, a romantic and quieter restaurant and bar in the space formerly occupied by Cellar in the Sky. A popular misconception is that Windows on the World was at the very top of the North tower, when in fact the top enclosed floor was the 110th floor, where CNN and some other television companies sited equipment and staff. The South tower, across the square, was home to the public glass-enclosed observatory located on the 107th floor and the world’s highest open-air deck on the 110th floor, that the tourists could visit. On the fateful day of 9/11 2001 the Windows on The World Conference Facility on the 106th floor was playing host to the Risk Waters Financial seminar. One floor above, on the 107th floor, the main restaurant and the bar were closed. Wild Blue, however was the only thing open on that floor and was serving breakfast to a number of WTC tenants and occupants. The Risk Waters Financial Conference The Risk Waters Group would not have normally been at the World Trade Center that day. They had organized a financial technology conference that was due to run both days of Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th of September 2001. They had invited a number of delegates from various financial companies and vendors in New York and the United States. What distinguishes those delegates from the other victims in the WTC is that they wouldn’t normally be there and chance had a way of putting them there that morning. This, of course, is of no solace to the families left behind, but nevertheless remains a gruesome fact. The delegate’s presence at the WTC is somewhat akin to the people who died at the (alleged) job interviews at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 95th floor. People who wouldn’t have normally been there, but happenstance put them there. The Risk Waters conference was due to start at 8:00 AM with Breakfast, with the first speaker due to begin at 9:00 the precise time of the impact were 16 staff from Risk Waters and 53 delegates from various invited companies and vendors in attendance. An additional 137 delegates had been invited but had not arrived at the time of the impact or did not plan in coming after all. Following the plane impact there were reports that delegates from this conference were being moved to the 107th floor. Conflicting reports indicate that smoke was heavy at the 107th floor and all the “Windows” staff was moved to the 106th floor to join the delegates. No Survivors From Above The 92nd Floor Christine Olender, the restaurant’s assistant general manager, said via her mobile phone to 911 services “We’re getting no direction up here. We’re having a smoke condition. We have most people on the 106th floor; the 107th floor is way too smoky, ” Other people above the impact site in the North Tower included staff from Windows on the World located on the 106th and 107th floors and from other companies on various floors above and below. It is understood that the roof deck was not accessible by the staff and delegates, but this is perhaps irrelevant as they may have sought adequate refuge on the 106th floor and rooftop rescue by helicopter was not a viable option, due to the updraft caused by the burning aviation fuel It is estimated over 200 people jumped to their death, with the majority of that number being made up from the North tower, where the fire and smoke were limited to fewer floors – which made it more intense. The estimate was because “Jumper” injuries were very similar to injuries sustained by enclosed occupants and could not be clearly established following the event. The figure was arrived at by analyzing photographs of descending bodies that were taken at the scene. In the North Tower there were 1360 fatalities above the 92nd floor, which was 100% of its occupants at the contrast, the South tower had one fire escape that was passable after their impact, so in fact 350 people escaped even though they were above the point of above the 92nd floor in the North tower on that fateful day meant certain death for its occupants. No one survived. While many WTC corporations knew the risk of an attack following the 1993 bomb was high, they had accepted the risk of this occurrence and went on with their daily lives. In retrospect all the regular daily inhabitants of the WTC were a walking probability. The Risk Waters group and delegates exemplify the randomness of the event. It seems sadly ironic that the Risk Waters Group range of products and services are dedicated to risk management. Individuals of Special Note Who Died in the North Tower Liz Thompson, executive director of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Liz Thompson 61 is executive director of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). Thompson was on what was to be the last elevator down from the 91st floor in the north tower of the World Trade Center. She was in a meeting concerning a public art commission; Liz is reported to have exited the lobby at 8:43 AM. LMCC artist in residence Michael Richards, was not so lucky, he remained on the 91st floor and perished. George Sleigh, naval architect 62-year old naval architect, George Sleigh, was in a north-facing office on the telephone to a colleague on the 91st floor. Incredibly, George witnessed the aircraft heading towards his building when it was just two to three plane lengths away. “It was quite a shock to see a large passenger plane that close to the building. Almost immediately upon me seeing it, the plane hit the building, ” he says. George works for the American Bureau of Shipping; its suite of offices was on the 91st floor, immediately to the left of the impact zone. It took George 50 minutes to descend the 91 flights to safety within a northern stairwell. He remains the highest survivor from the North Tower, no others from his floor (or above) survived Peter Field, the chairman and chief executive of Risk Waters Group Peter Field, the chairman and chief executive of Risk Waters Group, was scheduled to be at the Risk Waters conference that morning. He recalls, “I was up at about 6:30am to check my e-mail and phone the London office, intending to leave for the inaugural Waters Financial Technology Congress at the World Trade Center no later than 8:00 am. But I had trouble retrieving my e-mail and I decided to call our IT manager in London to get the problem sorted out. It was this simple act that probably saved my life. By the time I’d accessed my e-mail, I was running late, eventually leaving my hotel on the Upper West Side at about 8:10am. I ran across the road from my hotel to the 66th St. subway entrance only to find there was a long delay in the service on the 1 and 9 lines to the Cortlandt St. /World Trade Center station. Eventually, I crammed myself on to a train at around 8:25am. I thought: “I might still catch David’s opening remarks because the conference is bound to start a little late. ” Delegates always register at the last minute on the first day of conferences. David Rivers, our company’s editorial director in New York, knew more about financial technology than many in the industry and was therefore ideal to open the first Waters Congress at Windows on the World, on the 106th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center”When Peter arrived at street level at Cortlandt St at 8:50am he found the tragedy beginning to unfold “There was a sickening smell of what I thought was gas but which I later discovered was jet fuel”. ” On the shopping concourse above the station, I remember a brief glimpse of broken glass and a cacophony of alarms before I became aware of security guards screaming at us, “Run, run for your life””. Greg Manning, Trader at Euro Brokers Greg Manning who stood, horrified, on the morning of Sept. 11 as he watched the towers burn – smoke belching, he was certain, from the 105th floor of Tower One, where his wife Lauren worked, and the 84th floor of Tower Two, where his employer, Euro Brokers, was located. Friends and family called immediately. “I could not say whether Lauren was alive, ” Greg Manning wrote in his book. “I was almost certain she was dead. ” Behind schedule that day, Greg, a Euro Brokers vice president, was to have attended the Risk Waters conference at the Windows on the World on the 106th floor of Tower One. Tony Mann, President of E-J Electric Tony Mann, president of E-J Electric, Long Island City, which had an office in Tower 2, built and maintained the World Trade Center’s entire security system. On the morning of Sept. 11, the electricians were doing routine maintenance work when the first hijacked commercial airliner slammed into Tower 1. ”Five minutes before it happened, one of our foremen was on the 107th floor, ” Mann said. “His radio wasn’t working, so he came down and was walking across the lobby when the first plane hit. He then ran down to the basement to make sure all our people got out. ” Rick Weisfeld, President of Bronx Builders For Rick Weisfeld, president of Bronx Builders, a woodworking firm, the morning was especially hard. Three of his employees were in the World Trade Center, attending an early morning meeting at Windows on the World on the 107th floor “We were renovating one of the bars there, ” Weisfeld recalled. Later, he would learn that all three, including one a key foreman and a close friend, were among the nearly 3, 000 people who were killed in the World Trade Center attacks. Architect Obdulio Ruiz-Diaz, a draftsman with Bronx Builders, was one of those men with co-workers Joshua Poptean and Manuel DaMota. Chris Morrison (34) of Zurich Scudder Investments Chris Morrison (34) of Zurich Scudder Investments, grew up on High Plain Road, Andover, New York – where his parents – Joe and Maureen – still live. Chris was a popular and successful graduate of Central Catholic High School and St. Lawrence University. He was another delegate attending the Risk Waters seminar on the 106th floor. Heather Ho, executive pastry chef at New York’s Windows on the World restaurant Heather Ho, age 32 was an executive pastry chef at New York’s Windows on the World restaurant on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. Heather was always early for her job and worked hard. She was greatly admired for creative new ideas in the approach to traditional recipes. Her dream was to open her own pastry shop. A roommate described her as a unique and amazing person. She said she knew how to have a good time and also worked and played hard. Neil D. Levin, Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Neil D. Levin, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, wanted the agency’s airports to be showcases for the region, and pushed workers to develop high-tech improvements for airline passengers and time-deprived commuters. He was on the 106th floor talking with his secretary on the 67th floor of the North Tower. It is unclear why he was at the Risk Waters meeting, as it was primarily for the financial community and no other meetings were taking place on that floor that morning. His wife, Christy Ferer, an author and former television reporter said “The last time someone talked to him, he was on the 106th floor. His secretary [from his office on the 67th floor] was talking to him by phone, and as he was talking the plane hit, and they both said `Holy cow! ’ at the same time. The line went dead. Then [a co-worker] said she ran into someone who said he was on the 63rd floor, and that’s what gave me false hope. ” “He never returned home” The Final Messages To Loved Ones The final messages to the loved ones came in a variety of ways from Windows on the World. Some came via email, others by Blackberry, some managed to use land lines or mobile phones. Some accounts have faxes and others have cherished voicemail’s. By all reports the mobile phone network survived right up until the last minute because the primary transmitter was on the roof, albeit severely impaired by the volume of calls being placed throughout downtown Manhattan. When the final messages were being delivered through the various means, those who were trapped had no chance of survival, they just didn’t know it, neither did anyone else. It was assumed that they had a fighting chance, a slim opportunity to survive, surely someone would survive the dreadful tragedy. Brian Clark, a World Trade Center survivor in the 1993 and 2001 incidents said in his book “Why couldn’t there have been just one survivor from the North Tower above the impact site? – With a parachute or something, I know it sounds absurd, just so we can say one person survived” He added “Perhaps that individual would have been vilified by grieving families, or maybe it would have brought hope of man’s ability to endure however hopeless the odds”, “To see him jumping out of the building and gliding down in bright colors framed with the beautiful blue sky amid the terrible turmoil of the scene would have raised the hearts of both the trapped and the grieving families alike”, “It’s not their son, but he would have carried the spirit of all of them” “If that had been me, I can’t imagine how I would have been able to turn my back on those left behind though” With hindsight, many opportunities to avoid being caught up in this terrible tragedy existed, but who was to know such a terrible thing could happen on such a beautiful day. It seems that the odds of the event occurring remained constant and that time was the only unknown factor. This adds weight to the probability argument that, given time, everything can happen to everyone, everywhere. This single event has forever changed the way Americans live their lives, unlike any other single event in modern US history, save for Pearl Harbor and D-Day.
