Product Description & Reviews

Ganador del premio Pulitzer por La torre elevada, Lawrence Wright es considerado uno de los periodistas más prestigiosos en temas de terrorismo y Oriente Medio. Los reportajes reunidos en Los años del terror buscan dar explicación a la metamorfosis y la expansión de al-Qaeda desde sus orígenes en los años noventa hasta nuestros días, con el surgimiento del Estado Islámico. Desde el indeleble recuento de su estancia por Arabia Saudí, pasando por la industria cinematográfica siria, el conflicto de Gaza, y un devastador artículo sobre la captura y las ejecuciones de los cuatro periodistas y cooperadores internacionales en manos del Estado Islámico y el estrepitoso fracaso de las democracias occidentales, en particular de Estados Unidos para hacer frente al conflicto que asola Oriente Medio, el lector se ve embarcado en una inquietante travesía por el mundo de la violencia yihadista, convirtiéndose en observador de perpetradores, cabecillas, lobos solitarios, víctimas y enemigos. Reseñas:«Wright entreteje sus investigaciones en un sutil tapiz de experiencias personales y sensatas reflexiones.»James Traub, The New York Times Book Review «Fascinante[...] este libro llamará la atención de todos los lectores interesados en los orígenes y posterior desarrollo de los movimientos terroristas.»Library Journal «Uno de los periodistas más lúcidos nos ayuda de nuevo a comprender el extremismo islámico y la reacción occidental.»Ahmed Rashid, The New York Times «Un prosa clara e incisiva [...] Cada reportaje es una mina de informacióncondensada.»USA Today «Esto es reportaje de alto nivel. Lawrence Wright hace recuento de sus investigaciones con prosa cristalina sin perder su propio compás moral.»Max Boot, The Wall Street JournalENGLISH DESCRIPTIONWith the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Looming Tower, Lawrence Wright became generally acknowledged as one of our major journalists writing on terrorism in the Middle East. Here, in ten powerful pieces first published in The New Yorker, he recalls the path that terror in the Middle East has taken, from the rise of al-Qaeda in the 1990s to the recent beheadings of reporters and aid workers by ISIS.The Terror Years draws on several articles he wrote while researching The Looming Tower, as well as many that he’s written since, following where and how al-Qaeda and its core cultlike beliefs have morphed and spread. They include a portrait of the "man behind bin Laden," Ayman al-Zawahiri, and the tumultuous Egypt he helped spawn; an indelible impression of Saudi Arabia, a kingdom of silence under the control of the religious police; the Syrian film industry, at the time compliant at the edges but already exuding a feeling of the barely masked fury that erupted into civil war; the 2006–11 Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Gaza, a study in the disparate value of human lives. Other chapters examine al-Qaeda as it forms a master plan for its future, experiences a rebellion from within the organization, and spins off a growing web of worldwide terror. The American response is covered in profiles of two FBI agents and the head of the intelligence community. The book ends with a devastating piece about the capture and slaying by ISIS of four American journalists and aid workers, and our government’s failed response.On the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11, The Terror Years is at once a unifying recollection of the roots of contemporary Middle Eastern terrorism, a study of how it has grown and metastasized, and, in the scary and moving epilogue, a cautionary tale of where terrorism might take us yet.
