The world's had a few days to get used to the idea of a planet without Bin Laden, and now you might asking—what next? Here's a book that can help you with that question.

Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion and former editor of Newsweek (now he's executive editor and executive vice president at Random House) has edited an essay collection called Beyond Bin Laden: America and the Future of Terror. The collection will be released as an eBook on May 9.

Here's what you'll find in the book, from a Random House press release:

a group of penetrating analysts and leaders look ahead to the world after Bin Laden—to the future of Al Qaeda, of Afghanistan, of Pakistan. They explore the political, military, and cultural implications of the post–Bin Laden war on terror.

How are you getting your information about the search for Bin Laden, the mission that led to his death and what will come after?

Also in BookPage: Earlier this week I blogged about Steve Coll's The Bin Ladens: An Arabian Family in the American Century—a must-read for those who want more information on the entire Bin Laden family. Since I posted that recommendation, Coll has signed a deal to write a book about Bin Laden in the past decade.
