ISIS: The New Global Face of Terrorism


ISIS has become the global face of terrorism. The terrorist group has perpetrated terrifying attacks on both a grand and smaller scale against Westerners and non-supportive Muslims alike. ISIS (the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) is sometimes referred to as ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant). ISIS grew out of the wreckage of Iraq and Syria, and the group skillfully uses modern technology to recruit adherents and to plan attacks. The group's goal under its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is to bind millions of Muslims under a strict interpretation of Sharia law. What can the West do to quell ISIS? Is there a military solution? an economic approach? This title explores the political roots of ISIS terror, discusses its philosophy and methodologies, recounts tales from victims and recruits alike, and explores efforts to eradicate the group.
