Product description


Peter Bergen came to the UK from Washington, USA, in time for the press datewhich we set two months after the publication date to allow it to coincide with the world events to mark September 11th. Following a mailout to all key and specialist media in late July, Peter featured in featured in four articles(two on 20th August 2002, one on 4th September and one on 5th September) in the GUARDIAN and also in the OBSERVER (8th September 2003). An LWT TV documentary for CHANNEL 4, "The War on Terror on Trial", which was filmed whilst he was in the UK featured an interview with Peter Bergen and this ran the weekend before September 11th 2002. Peter Bergen was also interviewed live in the studio on NEWSNIGHT (BBC2) on 2nd September 2002, where he featured as an expert on terrorism and on bin Laden. Holy War, Inc was both mentioned by the presenter and captioned under Peter Bergen's name when it appeared on screen. This was followed up by interviews on GMTV (for broadcast on September 11th), NEWS OF THE WORLD (pub date tbc), OUTLOOK (BBC World Service), FI GLOVER SHOW (Radio 5 Live), ONE WORD RADIO, BRITISH FORCES BROADCASTING SERVICE (BFBS) and he was interviewed live on LBC on the evening of Saturday 7th September 2003. He was also interviewed in TRIBUNE magazine, ARIEL - BBC's Staff magazine (10 September), SOLDIER magazine (November), and EYESPY magazine. A review featured in THE WORLD TODAY's August-September 2002 edition saying Holy War, Inc is "one of the most comprehensive explorations of the Bin Laden phenomenon.Bergen's research is impressive. As an insight into the daily functions of the Al Qaeda network, Holy War, Inc ... is hard to beat ... highly informativeand dispassionate ... unlike others, Bergen does not make the mistake of equating the Taliban with Al Qaeda." Peter wrote an article about his research and the writing of Holy War, Inc for the 'Paperback Writer' slot in the GUARDIAN REVIEW and has also written a lengthy article for the TELEGRAPH (date of publication tbc). A comment piece by Peter Bergen featured in the TELEGRAPH on27th January 2003 and the FINANCIAL TIMES featured an review of Holy War, Inc in their 'Other New Titles' section on 27-28th July 2002 saying "This book ... sheds important new light on the intellectual and religious influences onbin Laden and the reach of his terrorist multinational" Whilst in the UK, Peter did a television interview for 2VAANDAG (a daily television news and current affairs program broadcast in the Netherlands). We also managed to schedule Peter to be interviewed on THE TODAY PROGRAMME (BBC Radio 4, Monday 2), andTHE WORLD TONIGHT (BBC Radio 4, for broadcast on September 11th) but sadly they both had to drop the interviews from their running order at the last minute due to world events. We had also lined up BBC BREAKFAST for the morning ofSeptember 11th, but Peter had to attend the Emmys(!) as he was nominated forhis journalism (specifically on subjects Holy War, Inc also features). Sincehis return to Washington, USA, we managed to secure an overseas link-up on THE TODAY PROGRAMME for Peter Bergen on 4th February 2003. He also appeared onBBC WORLD SERVICE on 4th February 2003 to discuss the putative Iraq - Al Qaeda connection. An article by Peter Bergen mentioning Holy War, Inc appeared in the GUARDIAN on 29th January 2003 and he was interviewed on BBC RADIO 5 on Wednesday 5th February 2003 The LA TIMES' Calandar Weekend section saw (unlikely fan) rock singer Alice Cooper plugging Holy War, Inc: "We all see this guy as one thing. The thing about this book is that you learn the history of this power mongerer and where his insanity comes from." Local radio interviews included those with BBC Radio Northampton, BBC Hereford and Worcester, BBC Radio Norfolk, BBC Radio Wiltshire Sound, BBC Radio Shropshire, BBC Radio Nottin
