Bill Loehfelm is a journalist and educator in New Orleans who specializes in that city's vibrant music scene. His book Osama bin Laden attempts to explain the life of the international terrorist to young readers. Loehfelm gives details of bin Laden's early life and his dedication to the most radical forms of Islam. The book also explores the founding of al-Qaeda and how bin Ladin inspired a generation of young fighters to give their lives for his agenda. Osama bin Ladin is an entry in the "Heroes and Villains" series published by Lucent Books. As John Peters noted in School Library Journal, "few readers are likely to sleep easily" after reading about this zealot's power and the scope of his influence.



School Library Journal, July, 2003, John Peters, review of Osama bin Ladin, p. 144.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
