Publishers Description: Peter Bergen, conducted the first TV interview with Osama bin Laden, the most significant financial sponsor of Islamic extremist activity in the world today, after the U.S. government had accused him of running terrorist training camps in Afghanistan and Sudan. In August 1996 bin Laden issued his first call to Muslims to attack U.S. targets. Since then his name has been linked to every major anti-American terrorist act by Muslims. For this book Bergen draws on ten years of bin Laden watching. The book will reveal the Islamist militants unsuspected previous links with the West, and why he has proved such a force throughout the Muslim world. Bergens personal experience of bin Laden and his secret world helps make this such a powerful and well-informed book that is unrivaled by anything already published or announced.
