The Looming Tower

Lawrence Wright, Alan Sklar

The Looming Tower achieves an unprecedented level of intimacy and insight by telling the story through the interweaving lives of four men: the two leaders of al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri; the FBIs counterterrorism chief, John O'Neill; and the former head of Saudi intelligence, Prince Turki al-Faisal. Wright reveals the crosscurrents of modern Islam that helped to radicalize Zawahiri and bin Laden … the birth of al-Qaeda and its unsteady development into an organization capable of absolute destruction.
