Product Details


“A vital contribution to our understanding of what is happening in the Middle East.” —Chris Hedges

The Islamist Phoenix is a great entry point for those in want of a more solid understanding of the history and social complexities involved in the rise of the Islamic State. Loretta Napoleoni explains how this iteration of Islamism does not form from a vacuum, but almost inevitably, and sometimes knowingly, from the circumstances and conditions of the West’s recent involvement in the Middle East in the last century. The Islamic State can, and almost certainly will, be defeated. But how it is defeated is what truly matters, especially in the years, decades, and centuries to come.” —Chelsea Manning

“Clear, concise, and unequivocal. A timely book in which the author brings her in-depth knowledge and expertise to bear on a dangerous development in the international terrorism arena that has been totally misread by the West and its allies.” —Michael Chandler, co-author of Countering Terrorism and chairman of the former UN Security Council al Qaeda Sanctions Committee Monitoring Team
