9780815726678: The Islamic State: A Brief Introduction
Reseña del editor:

In 2014 the Islamic State - also known as ISIS, or ISIL - seemingly appeared out of nowhere, capturing large swathes of territory in war-torn Syria and rushing across the border into Iraq and taking over the second-largest city in the country, Mosul. Then came a flurry of videos showing Western journalists being beheaded by the group and stories of young people leaving their homes in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States to fight with the Islamic State. What is the Islamic State? Is it a threat as potent and large as Al Qaeda in the early 2000s? Charles R. Lister, a Brookings fellow and journalist with long experience in the region, provides answers to these and other questions in The Islamic State: A Brief Introduction . He shows that IS is not a new phenomenon but has long historical roots in the region and has evolved from a small terrorist group into a functional state. He explains how it has also become a savvy propagandist, making use of social media both to trumpet its conquests and brutality and to attract adherents. And the book weighs how the West and regional powers need to act to ensure that IS will not, as its slogan proclaims, continue to be "lasting and expanding".

Descripción Brookings Institution Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 100 pages. An authoritative guide to the rise of the Islamic State and its senior leadership How did the Islamic State grow from regional terrorist group to a brutal multinational bureaucratic machine What are its goals How can it be stopped In 2014, the Islamic State seemingly appeared out of nowhere, routing Iraqi forces, conquering Iraqs second-largest city, boldly announcing the establishment of a caliphate, and declaring itself the Islamic State (IS). Today, IS controls thousands of square miles and is attempting to govern millions of people. In this definitive guide to the Islamic State and its senior leadership, Charles R. Lister traces its roots from the release of its notorious father figure, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, from a Jordanian prison and the groups formation in Afghanistan in the late-1990s, and finally to its stunning maturation in Iraq and Syria. The West knows IS through its unrelenting propaganda war. Behind the deft use of social media and the slick videos of despicable acts is what amounts to a proto-state. Lister shares details of ISs sophisticated revenue machine, attempts at governing, and its formidable military. With IS knocking on the doors of Lebanon, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia, Listers portrait helps us understand what to expect next and recommends a course of action to defeat IS, extinguish extremism, and encourage a tolerant Islam across the Middle East.
