Isis : The State of Terror
(c) Copyright Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
The so-called Islamic State, better known in the West as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), catapulted itself to Western attention in the summer of 2014 by posting gruesome videos of beheadings on social media and capturing cities in Iraq and Syria. As the authors of this highly informative and timely tome demonstrate, however, the story of ISIS did not begin in 2014. Stern (public policy, Harvard Univ.; Terror in the Name of God) and Berger (nonresident fellow, Brookings Institution; Jihad Joe) are among the foremost experts on violent extremism, and in this book they do an excellent job of examining the ideological and sociopolitical roots of a terrorist movement that is still shrouded in mystery to much of the Western world. Relying on a variety of references, including information derived from jihadist online sources and social media, they provide an in-depth account of the genesis and development of ISIS and analyze its rise and metamorphosis in the context of the post-Iraq War era in the region. -VERDICT Essential reading for American policymakers, journalists, and the public at large.
