Product description


Loretta Napoleoni has cast a light on the disturbing evolution of the criminal and jihadist kidnapping rings in the Middle East, a multimillion-dollar-a-year business, to the even more lucrative trafficking of migrants to Europe... This is the new world order. -- Chris Hedges, Author of WAGES OF REBELLION and former Middle East Bureau Chief for The New York Times
A masterpiece... this book should be required reading for everyone in the White House, State Department and Pentagon. -- Greg Palast, Author of THE BEST DEMOCRACY MONEY CAN BUY
A fascinating and incisive cataloguing of the known economic activities of organizations that ... have as their aim the transformation of the Middle East, the broader Muslim world and, ultimately, the United States. -- Praise for TERROR, INCORPORATED, The New York Times
Utterly compelling, heroically researched... [an] indispensable analysis. -- Praise for TERROR, INCORPORATED, Guardian
[A] tantalizing search to disentangle the threads of legend and reality in the strange tale of Abu Mos'ab al Zarqawi. -- Noam Chomsky, Praise for Insurgent Iraq

Previous acclaim:

The Islamist Phoenix is a vital contribution to our understanding of what is happening in the Middle East. It is, like all great pieces of journalism or history, a counter-narrative, one that refuses to become trapped in the easy and fatuous cliches peddled in the West about resistance and radical Islam. -- Chris Hedges, Former Middle East bureau chief for The New York Times
[Napoleoni] helps to explain the staying power of Isis. -- Financial Times
A frightening new book... [Napoleoni] catalogues kidnapping-for-cash by both government and rebel forces in Syria, but also has harsh words for our own profession of journalism. -- Independent
It is a fascinating story... Read Merchants of Men and you will never again ask why a Syrian teenager alighting in Croydon looks older and more wearied than his years. -- The Times

Book Description

A groundbreaking exploration of the new breed of criminals who control both the refugee pipelines and the kidnapping of Westerners to fund terrorist activities in the Middle East.
