The Rise and Fall of Osama bin Laden

by Peter L. Bergen

The Rise and Fall of Osama bin Laden

Peter L. Bergen

Overview

No one had foreseen that one attack would lead the United States to conduct several military operations in the name of the war on terror. Osama bin Laden's dreadful legacy is indeed written in the blood of over 7,000 Americans and thousands of Afghans, Iraqis, Libyans, Pakistanis, Somalis, Syrians, and Yemenis.

But the question remains: what drove bin Laden to such hatred? Peter Bergen, the only journalist who has interviewed him several times, lets us in on the psychology of the 9/11 attack's main organizer. Bergen is also a New York Times bestselling author, a professor at Arizona State University, and a CNN national security commentator.

In The Rise and Fall of Osama bin Laden, Bergen draws the life picture of Osama bin Laden from his early childhood to his death, revealing his transformation from being the son of a wealthy businessman to the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks.
