In Random House's first instant e-Book, award-winning author and Executive Editor at Random House, Jon Meacham, presents a new collection of essays on Osama bin Laden.

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. On May 1st, 2011, a nighttime raid at the end of a dirt road in Pakistan ended the hunt for bin Laden.

But what now? 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. In this provocative collection of essays edited and introduced by Pulitzer Prize winning 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. They explore the political, military, and cultural implications of the post-bin Laden war on terror. From Richard N. Haass to the Council on Foreign Relations to former U.S. Army officer Andrew Exum, Beyond Bin Laden gives readers intelligent, deeply informed, and urgent glimpses of what comes next.
