More About Isis by Kevin M. DeJesus
 
 
 
Overview

Many academic analysts and news media reduce ISIS to merely another manifestation of Islamic extremism. But the reasons that an organization of such a brutal and illegal nature has reached tremendous power and successfully mounted a formidable challenge to the Iraqi state are complex, contingent, and entangled. This book provides the first comprehensive analysis that examines the interplay of regional and international factors that created the conditions for ISIS's rise. It puts the pieces together of a fractured region that has recently witnessed the promise of the Arab Spring; intensifying sectarianism, failed; and deeply, violently divided nation-states, connecting the local political, social, and economic factors with the political and military interventions of key global powers, including the United States and Russia.

Author Kevin M. DeJesus, PhD, provides an easy-to-comprehend examination of the organization's origins and evolution as well as a survey of the regional crises and states where ISIS has originated, projected, and established an insurgency. His well-researched analysis brings regional and international security dynamics into focus while also addressing prospects for the region's future in light of the presence of armed insurgencies such as ISIS and the enduring internationalization of the region's conflicts. Readers will come away with an understanding of how ISIS has wielded a global impact in a remarkably short span of time and contemplate strategies for weakening and containing ISIS.
