Osama : the making of a terrorist by Jonathan C Randal( Book )

54 editions published between 1004 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jonathan Randal - a journalist whose experience of the Middle East spans the past forty years - makes clear how Osama's life epitomizes the fatal collision between twenty-first-century Islam and the West, and he describes the course of Osama's estrangement from both the West and the Saudi petro-monarchy of which his family is a part. He examines Osama's terrorist activities before September 11, 2001, and shows us how, after the attack on the World Trade Center, Osama presented the West with something new in the annals of contemporary terrorism: an independently wealthy entrepreneur with a seemingly worldwide following ready to do his bidding. Randal explores the possibility that Osama offered the Saudis his Al-Qaeda forces to drive Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait in 1991; he traces the current sources of Osama's money; and he tells us why the Iraq war has played into the hands of the terrorists." "With his long-maintained sources in the Middle East and his intimate understanding of the region, Randal gives us a clearer explanation than any we have had of the whys and wherefores of the world's most prominent and feared terrorist."--Jacket

After such knowledge, what forgiveness? : my encounters with Kurdistan by Jonathan C Randal( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan C. Randal has been celebrated for more than a quarter century for his trenchant reporting on war and civil disturbances in the Third World. Here is his firsthand report on Kurdistan - a shocking, tragic account of diplomacy and politics in the Middle East, and a gripping adventure story about being a war reporter in the 1990s. Throughout the Kurds' history, world powers have promised to help them achieve autonomy, and each time the Kurds have been betrayed. But they are also masters of betrayal: Randal, recording their talent for vehement internecine warfare and their gift for friendship, takes us behind the headlines to the inner story of power politics in the Middle East, and it is not a pretty one. His sympathetic knowledge of Kurdish history and his unparalleled access to Kurdish leaders and to diplomats, ministers, intelligence agents, warriors, and journalists make him the only writer able to get that story for us and discover the truth

4 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents a look into the different stages of bin Laden's life, and how each battle hardened his resolve, deepened his sense of struggle, and intensified his anger. Randal also outlines the failures and miscalculations of the U.S. in its attempts to contain and thwart the elusive bin Laden - most notably, Clinton's series of bombings in Afghanistan and Sudan, which, in failing to kill bin Laden, led many Muslims to believe that Allah had saved him and boosted his reputation hugely. 2004
