Beyond Bin Laden: America and the Future of Terror by Jon Meacham

Beyond Bin Laden: America and the Future of Terror

by Jon Meacham

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
2 Hrs. 25 Min.


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.
