    Probably the best book if you really want to understand the genesis of Islamic State of Ira and Syria in any detail The book covers its history its present ideology and its future aspirations Atwan presents a much needed view of the new revolutionary and deadly Islamic militancy from the inside Atwan is not a Western view apologist and has refused to label ISIS a terrorist organization and I agree with his approach I also agree with Atwan that ISIS is here to stay so this current Western position of refusing to engage with them is pretty baffling After all these are the same fundamentalists which Anglo Saxon leaders were arming and engaging since WW1 The major reason for the popularity of ISIS in countries like Saudi Arabia is because of the unpopularity of its ruling family The Royals of Saudi Arabia have been directing this hatred against them ever since the forcefully uashing the uprising in 1979 This explains the Saudi enthusiasm in supporting the Mujaheddin in Afghanistan as well as Syria ISIS is just like another revolutionary movement and like any other revolution it feeds off injustice and disenfranchisement shared by majority public opinion Isn't it time to finally give Palestinians a viable country and withdraw all support for despotic regimes like Saudi Arabia and atar instead of continuously engaging with them?

    An excellent overview of the Islamic State its history how it came to being and an insight into how it is organized This book is also a good resource on recent Middle East conflicts that lead to the rise of the most dangerous terrorist organization of our times

  3. Ekul Ekul says:

    If you've followed all the New Yorker and Washington Post exposés about ISIS you'll know most of what's written here already It already feels a bit dated but it's good to know because the internet is a powerful place for political organization and it may be relevant once again in the future In spite of these things it's worth the read

  4. Paige Paige says:

    In Abdel Bari Atwan's book Digital Caliphate Atwan gives substantial information on the Islamic State Drawing on connections Atwan is able to provide readers with a good idea of the terrorist group While news reports tend to focus on the atrocities committed by the terrorist group Digital Caliphate contains information on ISIS's infrastructure history and short biographies of key peopleAtwan does not spend much time discussing how the United States and other Western countries should respond Although he does provide his own opinion he largely leaves the reader to make hisher own opinion This book is a must read for everyone As Atwan notes the Islamic State is not something that will be defeated uickly In order to combat the group and their propaganda we should be familiar with their tactics background and goals All of that and much can be found within Digital Caliphate Disclaimer I received this book for free from GoodReads in return for my honest unbiased opinion

  5. Anthony Anthony says:

    Abdel Bari Atwan is extremely well versed in the early days of the Islamic State of Ira back when they were merely ISI He also has an ideological axe to grind against the neocons that taints most of his prose Whereas few may find this annoying I could not help but notice that he like a few of his contemporaries find scoring points against old enemies important than learning about this group That said read this book as it lends a lot of insight as to how ISIS recruits grooms and motivates its followers

  6. Melody Melody says:

    If you ever thought to yourself I wonder how ISIS came about? this is the book for you While the book is not a gripping autobiographical account of an experience with the group it gives a wonderful history lesson in Islam and how ISIS has derived their own interpretation of what it means to live in a caliphate Despite enjoying the book overall there was too much history and not enough of a discussion about their use of technology After all I did pick up the book intending to learn about their propaganda releases and how they have used technological advances to propel the War on Terror into a psychological war as opposed a purely physical In retrospect the history lesson is really important in understanding their mindset however I felt bored and was eager to get back to the topic that this book was named for

  7. James James says:

    An in depth and well argued analyis of the origins of the ISDaesh group from a writer with strong credentials in analysing Islamic radicalism he interviewed Osama bin Laden in 1996 and who has a strong personal connection to the wider Middle East region Abdel Bari Atwan is of Palestinian arab background and is familiar with the wider region through his editorship of the London based Arabic language newspaper 'Al uds al Arabi' for many years I found the book both well informed and well written and gained a strong insight into the motivations and aims of those who comprise the leadership of so called Islamic State

  8. Alex Crowther Alex Crowther says:

    This is probably one of the best books I have read so far It explains in detail how Islamophobia affected Muslim teenagers and adolescents living in western Europe after 911 and the 77 bombings It gives a person a good understanding how DaeshISIL uses social media to gain supporters and even soldiers though twitter and facebook I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the current events going on in SyriaIra at the moment

  9. Wiwiek Wiwiek says:

    It's a really great book that gives rich narratives on how IS came about and their development Granted this is the first book on the subject I read Atwan brilliantly explains the geopolitics of Middle East that makes it easy even for those unfamiliar with the topic to follow but without sacrificing the depth of his research The only criticism I have is just that the chapters have obviously been written as separate article and some repetitions occur in the following chapters

  10. Motaz Larnaouti Motaz Larnaouti says:

    really its a good book from Abdel Bari Atwan he explained everything from that prophet Mohamed until this daysevedince and interviews to take information some of them from the mean inside the Islamic state '' IS'' and some of them from Al aida people and others as Expert with Al aida he made it clear from where IS they bring that kind of thinkingam not going to say but am going to leave the reast to you
