Past Event

ISIS and the state of terror: The genesis, evolution, and impact of the Islamic State

ISIS: State of TerrorThough insurgent groups are a fixture of contemporary politics and warfare, the Islamic State or ISIS is unprecedented in its mix of brutality, media savvy, territorial gain, and recruitment. 

In ISIS: The State of Terror, two of America’s leading experts on violent extremism and terrorism explain the genesis, evolution, and impact of the Islamic State. Drawing on their unique access to intelligence and law enforcement and through their own groundbreaking research, Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger detail ISIS’s strategies and techniques – and challenge our own conceptions of terrorism in a rapidly changing jihadi landscape.

On March 24, the Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World hosted Berger and Stern to discuss the threat posed by ISIS. The authors outlined their recommendations for government responses to the ISIS threat.
