Abstract EN

The terrorist events of September 11, 2001 had negative effects on social life and family relationships in America.

This research paper examines these effects through an analytical study of Joseph O'Neill's novel Netherland (2008).

The 9 / 11 events have transformed the world into an unsafe place with the continuous threats of terrorists to commit more attacks on the American soil.

In response to the horrible attacks, the American administration started new policies to enhance national security.

O'Neill's novel Netherland illustrates that the attack had a great impact not only on Muslims and Arabs, but also on European Christians, represented through the characters of Hans and Rachel.

Furthermore, the cricket game has symbolic social and political values in the novel.

It foreshadows the unity of the .multicultural team in New York, who show respect and tolerance to one another.
