The Islamic State, or ISIS, has become one of the most deadly terrorist organizations in the world. ISIS made headlines with their use of violence and intimidation in Syria and Iraq and are credited with carrying out attacks in Europe and inspiring attacks in the United States. This book discusses the rise of ISIS in the Middle East, their international reach, the distinction between attacks inspired by and coordinated by ISIS, and how countries are responding. The book will help students understand the ideology of ISIS, how they carry out attacks, and how experts feel the group can be countered.
