**One of "The Wall Street Journal"'s 10 Must-Read Books on the Evolution of Terrorism in the Middle East**'**One of ABC News's Books of the Year in 2015**
Excellent Aatish Taseer, "The New York Times""The story [of Zarqawi's rise] is well told by William McCants in his excellent new book, "The Isis Apocalypse"" David Ignatius, "The Atlantic" Every policymaker and any concerned citizen who wants to understand the rise of ISIS should read this insightful and essential book by one of our greatest scholars of Islamist movements. Lawrence Wright, author, THIRTEEN DAYS IN SEPTEMBER: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David and LOOMING TOWER: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 It's hard to imagine anything more alien or revolting than the brutality of the Islamic State. Yet Will McCants's "ISIS Apocalypse "is lucid, thoughtful and illuminating on the group, its history, ideology and personalities. McCants understands every nuance of the religious concepts that drive the ISIS leadership, and he does a masterful job of explicating them and laying out the group's strategy. This is much the best work yet on the Islamic State. Ambassador Daniel Benjamin, State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism (2009-2012) No one knows more about ISIS's doomsday theology than Will McCants. McCants listens to the group with uncommon care and subtlety, and policymakers need to read this book to understand ISIS's origins and plans. Graeme Wood, Edward R. Murrow Fellow, The Council on Foreign Relations Contributing editor, The Atlantic Lecturer in political science, Yale University"An excellent account of how ISIS came into being...As to the future, McCants wonders if ISIS s grotesque brutality will prove its undoing. Not necessarily. Up to a point, he argues, brutality works" "The Economist""
