American Ground: Unbuilding the World Trade Center by William Langewiesche

This book is a compilation of Atlantic Monthly articles about the dismantling of the World Trade Center after September 11. It is an important piece of journalism. The details about the Sept. 11 attacks and the looting and conflicts between the policemen and firemen during the "unbuilding" process that make it hard to read at times as well. However, it is well worth it.
