Product description


"The authors of ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror, published this month in the US, spoke to dozens of fighters and members of the group to understand its allure and how it justifies its brutal tactics." -- The Asian Age

"Weiss and Hassan offer the fuller and more convincing account. They trace the life of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian petty criminal who missed the jihad against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, but went on to start his own much bloodier one against America in Iraq." --The Economist

"Tribal businesses were disrupted or taken over by those seeking their own monopoly on smuggling, and [ISIS] protected its confiscated interest with a mafia s thuggish zeal. It justified killing on the basis of market competition, write Michael Weiss and Hassan Hassan in ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror." -- Middle East Eye

" Weiss and Hassan have produced a detailed and readable book... The authors provide useful insights into Isis governance a combination of divide-and-rule, indoctrination and fear and are well placed for the task." -- The Guardian

"A witches brew of pitiless civil war and a flailing tyrant have given birth to Isis. If you want to understand how this calamity has come about, these concise and informative books provide an essential grounding." - The Independent

"Syrian researcher Hassan Hassan and the European Council on Foreign Relations Senior Policy Fellow Julien Barnes-Dacy discuss the challenges and threats posed by ISIS." - --ECFR Radio
