Published:   April 27, 2012

Published to coincide with the first anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death, Peter Bergen's new book, MANHUNT: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad, offers an unforgettable, inside account of how bin Laden was brought to justice after a decade-long search that began on September 12, 2001. TIME Magazine's cover story - on stands today -previews his book, which goes on sale May 1.

Bergen - director of New America's National Security Studies Program and CNN's national security analyst - completed exhaustive research, held unprecedented interviews with key players, and gained exclusive access to the Abbottabad compound in which bin Laden lived his final years. In fact, Bergen was the only outsider to tour the compound before it was destroyed by the Pakistani military. He is also one of only two journalists given access by the White House to the "treasure trove" of materials collected there.
