The Bin Laden family's rise to prominence took place in a country founded on extreme religious purity, which later became awash in oil money and increasingly influenced by the West. What lessons can be learned from the Bin Ladens and Saudi Arabian life? Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and author of the national bestseller Ghost Wars, Steve Coll presents the story of the Bin Laden family's rise to power and how American influence resulted in one member's determination to destroy the influence of Western culture.
