Présentation de l'éditeur :

Osama bin Laden is the western world's most wanted terrorist. Intent on secrecy at all costs, his personal life has been shrouded in mystery until now. For the first time, Osama's first wife and fourth son break the silence to reveal the truth about the character and life of a man both feared and revered around the globe. Osama married his first cousin Najwa when he was just 17. Here she describes the quiet, serious young man she fell in love with, who would take her from a life of extraordinary wealth in Saudi Arabia to a remote mountaintop in Afghanistan. As his senior wife, she would bear him eleven children and watch him become ever stricter, until his growing fanaticism tore the family apart. Their son, Omar, gives a detailed account of his childhood, vying for his father's love in a household of more than 20 brothers and sisters and a youth spent learning desert survival skills and handling Kalashnikovs. Here we see Osama the authoritarian husband and stern father, the entrepreneur, and the leader of a complex terrorist network. Together, in gripping detail, mother and son reveal their life on the run forced to flee from country to country in response to Osama's increasingly militant activities until their eventual escape from Afghanistan just before the tragic events of 9/11 that would change the world forever. Never before has Osama's own family gone beyond the headlines to show us Osama the man. Now, with unprecedented access, and complete with exclusive family photographs, Jean Sasson, author of the bestselling Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia, takes us inside the secret world of Osama bin Laden.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Najwa Ghanem bin Laden, who married her cousin Osama bin Laden at the age of 15, is his first wife and the mother of seven of his sons and four of his daughters. Omar bin Laden, the fourth son of Osama, has publicly called for his father to change his ways. Jean Sasson, author of the bestselling Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia, has studied Middle Eastern culture for over thirty years.

Description du livre Oneworld Publications, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. État : New. 198 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. As the western world s most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden has fought to keep his personal life a mystery - loyalty and fear keeping those who know him from speaking out - until now. For the first time, two of Osama s closest family members, his first wife Najwa and their fourth son Omar, go behind the headlines to reveal the truth about the character and life of a man feared and revered around the globe. In gripping detail, they recount the drama, tensions, and everyday activities of the man they knew as a husband and father. Married at fifteen, Najwa describes the transformation of the quiet, serious young man she fell in love with into an authoritarian husband and stern father, an entrepreneur, and - finally - the leader of a complex international terrorist network. Uprooted from a life of extraordinary luxury and privilege in Saudi Arabia, they suddenly found themselves living life on the run, fleeing from country to country under assumed names and fake passports. Omar describes how he and his siblings were brought up in remote ranches and fortified Afghani mountain camps, handling Kalashnikovs and learning desert survival skills. Their eventual escape from Afghanistan would come just days before the terrible events of 9/11 changed the world forever. With unprecedented access and exclusive family photographs, Jean Sasson, author of the bestselling Princess, presents the story that we were never meant to hear.

Description du livre Penguin Books India/Oneworld Publications, 2011. Softcover. État : New. First edition. In their own words, Osama Bin Laden?s first wife Najwa and son Omar share the astonishing story of the man they knew ? or thought they knew. Growing Up Bin Laden tells the story of a young girl who married her gentle and kindly first-cousin, enjoying a happy early marriage with the groom of her choice. But as world events thrust her husband into a frenzy of militant activities, his once pleasing behaviour is altered; and Najwa and her innocent children?s lives become a maze of escaping from one country to another. Osama?s fourth-born son, Omar ? who wanted nothing but his father?s love, describes his early years, life with his father in Afghanistan and his eventual escape to Saudi Arabia. Together, their powerful story as mother and son give us an extraordinary view of a man hated by so many, yet both loved and feared by his family, including: Osama?s disapproval of modern conveniences, including electricity and medicine Osama?s plan to toughen up his sons by taking them into the desert without food or water Omar?s horror at the murder of a boy his own age by members of a jihadist group living among them in the Sudan What happened in the bin Laden home in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on the morning of September 11, 2001; Omar?s surprise phone call from his mother who escaped from Afghanistan only two days before the New York terrorist attack.
