What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
"This is the book for which anyone bewildered by nature of Islamic militancy, and longing for a primer, has been waiting … this is history written directly from the front line ... If it is journalists who write the first draft of history, then historians of the early 21st century will be lucky in having Jason Burke as a source" (Tom Holland Evening Standard)
"Important and impressive ... the most accessible and up-to-date analysis of the development of Islamic militancy ... a clear and convincing account ... consistently fascinating" (Guardian)
"An excellent account ... The idea of home-grown extremism is not new. But Burke argues - convincingly - that its nature has changed" (Telegraph)
"To understand Islamic State, there can be few better books to read … a magisterial account of the fast-changing world of Islamist militancy … a remarkably clear roadmap for understanding the seemingly chaotic world of contemporary jihad … Burke’s clear-eyed analysis, based on remarkably wide-ranging research, should be mandatory reading for anyone seeking to understand the globalisation of jihad and to avoid repeating past mistakes" (Literary Review)
"Riveting and readable" (Daily Express)
"Comprehensive and authoritative" (Independent)
"A masterful exploration ... an essential and often gripping read" (Professor Theo Farrell, Head of the Department of War Studies, Kings College London)

"Compelling and meticulously researched" (Foreign Affairs)
"How much ought the West to fear the self-styled “caliphate”? Perhaps not as greatly as politicians make out, according to Jason Burke … comprehensive" (The Economist)
