Item description for Bin Laden: El hombre que declaró la guerra a los Estados Unidos (Spanish Edition) by Yossef Bodansky...

Inside the Campaign to Terrorize America Who is Osama bin Laden--the only terrorist leader ever to have declared a holy war against America? What drives him and those he leads to hate a West that helped enrich and arm them? Bin Laden's name has been linked to a number of incidents that have cost Americans their lives, including the bombing of the USS Cole in 2000 and the destruction of the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Now, he is linked to the recent catastrophic assaults on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Here is a comprehensive account of the rise of bin Laden. In meticulous detail, world-renowned terrorism expert Yossef Bodansky uncovers the events in bin Laden's life that turned the once-promising engineering student into a cold-blooded leader of radical Islam. In the process, Bodansky reveals a chilling story that is as current as today's headlines but as ancient as the Crusades--a story that transcends bin Laden and any other single man. This book is a sobering wake-up call.

Blurb in Spanish:
Yossef Bodansky comenz a estudiar la personalidad de un joven llamado Osama bin Laden en 1981. "A mediados de la dcada de los 80, me encontraba en Londres conversando con un amigo islamita de origen rabe. En esa poca, l era todava un combatiente activo por la causa afgana. Visitaba Londres para recibir tratamiento mdico por una herida recibida en combate. Hablamos sobre su experiencia en Afganistn y el nombre de Osama bin Laden apareci en nuestra conversacin: 'Es un hombre nico', dijo mi amigo. 'Puedes notarlo en su mirada. Est trabajando por Alah como nadie ms. Es un verdadero guerrero de Dios'. Tras una breve pausa, aadi: 'Ponle mucha atencin. Si no lo matan pronto, llegar lejos. Ser un gran lder de la jihad porque no teme a nadie, excepto a Alah.' Desde entonces, he puesto especial atencin en Osama bin Laden."

El presente libro es el resultado de cerca de 30 aos de anlisis puntual sobre bin Laden y el entorno que determina su actividad, no una obra que se redacta en das para satisfacer las necesidades editoriales tras un suceso como el ocurrido el 11 de septiembre. Por lo tanto, el lector se encontrar sin duda ante la obra ms completa que en su gnero pueda encontrar, adentrndose en el complejo mundo de los fundamentalistas musulmanes, en el contexto sociohistrico que ha determinado su actuacin y conociendo, muchas veces en versiones de primera mano, el entramado de los grupos terroristas que han declarado la guerra a Estados Unidos en particular y a Occidente en general. Slo con la ayuda de un libro como el de Bodansky, se puede llegar a tener una idea de los mviles que llevaron a que bin Laden dejara de lado una vida respetable como heredero de una de las constructoras ms importantes del Medio Oriente, para vivir oculto en una cueva con sus quince hijos y cuatro esposa!s, con un rudimentario sistema de calefaccin que apens basta para soportar el invierno afgano y siempre atento a los intentos de homicidio, a acciones de comando y ataques areos por parte de sus oponentes.

Al tiempo que Bodansky detalla los sucesos que desviaron el destino de bin Laden para dejar la promisoria prctica de la ingeniera y convertirse en un lder sanguinario del islamismo radical, el autor revela una historia estremecedora, tan actual como los encabezados de los peridicos y, al mismo tiempo, tan antigua como las Cruzadas, una historia que trasciende a bin Laden y a cualquier otro individuo. En suma, esta obra es una llamada de alerta para toda la sociedad.
