A comprehensive look at bin Laden by a former congressional investigator.
A scholarly, though readable, book that traces Osama bin Laden's influence to his ability to mobilize the "Afghan Arabs" who came together from all over the Middle East to fight against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Bodansky shows the role of bin Laden and his terrorists in stirring up terror in Chechnya, Bosnia, Somalia, Kosovo, Malaysia, and the Philippines. This book is the best of the volumes on bin Laden and company.
