Read this book as part of the research I m doing for a project investigating ISIS and the degree to which the United States contributed to their ascension I found Hosken s work to be well written, thoroughly researched, and helpful in establishing acomprehensive understanding of how ISIS came into being and what ISIS looks like today Certainly not an easy book to read, but a pivotal organization to understand today This book helps to do that. A deeply disturbing but well written blow by blow account of rise of ISIS and the chaos left in the aftermath of the Iraq invasion that played a part in its rise Essential reading for anyone interested in the current situation in the Middle East I
