Beyond Bin Laden: America and the Future of Terror | [Jon Meacham (editor), James A. Baker III, Karen Hughes, Richard N. Haass, Bing West]

Beyond Bin Laden: America and the Future of Terror

Osama bin Laden was the most wanted man in American history - an enemy who brought the United States what President George W. Bush called “a day of fire”, and ushered in a new era of terrorism. It took a decade of blood and sacrifice, of determination and frustration, but finally, in a nighttime raid at the end of a dirt road in Pakistan, the hunt for Bin Laden ended with a gunshot. It was a dramatic climax to a long and painful chapter. But now what?

Publisher's Summary

Osama bin Laden was the most wanted man in American history - an enemy who brought the United States what President George W. Bush called “a day of fire”, and ushered in a new era of terrorism. It took a decade of blood and sacrifice, of determination and frustration, but finally, in a nighttime raid at the end of a dirt road in Pakistan, the hunt for Bin Laden ended with a gunshot. It was a dramatic climax to a long and painful chapter.

But now what? The terrorist threat that has defined American policy since the attacks of 9/11 did not die with Bin Laden in his walled compound near Islamabad. Radicals still wish us harm, and we must fight on.

In this provocative collection of essays, edited and introduced by Pulitzer Prize winner Jon Meacham, a group of penetrating analysts and leaders look ahead to the world after Bin Laden - to the future of Al Qaeda, of Afghanistan, of Pakistan. We explore the political, military, and cultural implications of the post-Bin Laden war on terror. Beyond Bin Laden gives listeners intelligent, deeply informed, and urgent glimpses of what comes next.

    "Scary Times That We're Living In....."

    Authors Jon Meacham, James Baker, Karen Hughes, Richard Haas and Bing West all come together to give an excellent portrayal of the life and times of Osama bin Laden.

    These are all experts in the field and this book, Beyond Bin Laden, really is hard-hitting, fact filled, and shows just what impact bin Laden and the Al Qaeda terrorist network had on our country both before and after 9/11.

    Our country, America, is still showing the after effects as we are involved and can’t quite seem to remove ourselves fully from the different skirmishes in the Middle East. Soon as things quiet down a little bit in Afghanistan, things pop up in Pakistan, then Iraq, then Egypt, and on and on and on. Where it stops, nobody knows.

    The cost to America has been great in lives lost during and on the battlefield, homeland security, inconveniences to everyday Americans, and the list just goes on.

    I thought this was an excellent read, and for those who want to keep up on what’s going on in the Middle East, and life after bin Laden, read this book!!!
