Times of London Best Books of 2015

Wall Street Journal Top 10 Books on Terrorism

"Weiss and Hassan provide a detailed explanation of how the Islamic State “manages savagery” on the ground…this account of the Islamic State in Iraq is a valuable summation and the most serious book-length study of the Islamic State to be published so far." Source: New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

"The first book to fully explain what ISIS is seeking and why they are such a threat to the world. An absolute must-read for anyone who wants to understand the risk we all face from radical Islam." Author: Douglas E. Schoen, political analyst, author of Source: The Russia-China Axis: The New Cold War and America’s Crisis of Leadership

"A . . . detailed and nuanced story." Author: James Traub Source: Wall Street Journal

"Weiss and Hassan have produced a detailed and readable book. Their informants include American and regional military officials and intelligence operatives, defected Syrian spies and diplomats, and – most fascinating of all – Syrians who work for Isis (these are divided into categories such as politickers, pragmatists, opportunists and fence-sitters). The authors provide useful insights into Isis governance – a combination of divide-and-rule, indoctrination and fear – and are well placed for the task. Hassan, an expert on tribal and jihadist dynamics, is from Syria’s east. Weiss reported from liberated al-Bab, outside Aleppo, before Isis took it over."—Robin Yassin-Kassab, author of The Road from Damascus, is writing (with Leila al-Shami) a book on the civil activists of the Syrian revolution Source: Guardian

“recounted in painstaking detail…the book presents a granular analysis of the IS’s organization, ideology, funding and recruitment.” Author: Muhammad Idrees Ahmad, author of The Road to Iraq: the Making of a Neoconservative War Source: In These Times

ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror, by Michael Weiss and Hassan Hassan, does a first-rate job of describing the Islamic State’s layers… in Syria and in Iraq.” Author: Paul Berman, author of A Tale of Two Utopias, Terror and Liberalism, Power and the Idealists, and the Flight of the Intellectuals Source: Tablet

“Concise, valuable, and a compelling read for anyone- general reader or specialist- interested in ISIS.” Author: Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi Source: Syria Comment

“Incredibly rich and valuable for the specialist and non-specialist alike…it is a rich and nuanced piece touching on all the points that the arrival of ISIS has raised in Syria and Iraq.” Author: Tam Hussein Source: The Huffington Post
