9780062395542: ISIS: The State of Terror

The Islamic State, known as ISIS, exploded into the public eye in 2014 with startling speed and shocking brutality. It has captured the imagination of the global jihadist movement, attracting recruits in unprecedented numbers and wreaking bloody destruction with a sadistic glee that has alienated even the hardcore terrorists of its parent organization, al Qaeda.

Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger, two of America’s leading experts on terrorism, dissect the new model for violent extremism that ISIS has leveraged into an empire of death in Iraq and Syria, and an international network that is rapidly expanding in the Middle East, North Africa and around the world.

ISIS: The State of Terror traces the ideological innovations that the group deploys to recruit unprecedented numbers of Westerners, the composition of its infamous snuff videos, and the technological tools it exploits on social media to broadcast its atrocities, and its recruiting pitch to the world, including its success at attracting thousands of Western adherents. The authors examine ISIS’s predatory abuse of women and children and its use of horror to manipulate world leaders and its own adherents as it builds its twisted society. The authors offer a much-needed perspective on how world leaders should prioritize and respond to ISIS’s deliberate and insidious provocations.

From the Back Cover:

In ISIS: The State of Terror, two of America’s leading experts on terrorism dissect the new model for violent extremism that the Islamic State, known as ISIS, has leveraged into an empire of death in Iraq and Syria, and an international network that is rapidly expanding. Stern and Berger offer a much-needed perspective on how world leaders should prioritize and respond to ISIS’s deliberate and insidious provocations in this compelling, essential account.

ISIS should be required reading for every politician and policy maker....[Stern and Berger’s] smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations....A nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group.”—Washington Post

Descripción Ecco, U.S.A., 2015. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. In a world where terrorist groups have become a fixture of contemporary politics and warfare, the sheer brutality of the group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or simply the Islamic State, has shocked even the most jaded observers. Its sadistic disregard for human life, sophisticated use of social media, acquisition of territory, and ability to attract foreign fighters -- many from modern Western democracies -- is unprecedented. ISIS: The State of Terror is an analysis of the methods ISIS uses to both frighten innocent citizens and lure new soldiers -- including the "ghoulish pornography" of their propaganda videos, the seductive appeal of "jihadi chic," and their startlingly effective social media expertise. While ISIS poses a significant threat, our response must be carefully calibrated, terrorism experts Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger warn; in many ways, ISIS has risen from the ashes of our attempts to combat terrorism so far. Although the picture Stern and Berger paint is bleak, ISIS: The State of Terror also offers well-informed thoughts on potential government responses to ISIS -- most importantly, emphasizing that we must alter our present conceptions of terrorism and terrorists and react to the rapidly changing jihadi landscape, both online and off, as quickly as the terrorists do. ISIS: The State of Terror is not only a compelling account of the evolution of a terrorist organization, but a necessary book that attempts to answer the question of what our nex move -- as a country, as a government, as the world -- should be. HarperOne, Hardcover, 1st Edition, 2015. This is a BRAND NEW book. There is a black "closeout/remainder" mark on the bottom page edges. Nº de ref. de la librería 000021
