Publisher's Summary

ISIS rocketed onto the world stage seemingly out of nowhere, beheading American hostages, bulldozing international borders, routing the American-trained Iraqi army, and carving out a new state that rules eight million people and a territory larger than the United Kingdom. But who are they? Where did ISIS come from, and how did they rise to power in so little time? What is driving them - and how can they be stopped?
New York Times best-selling author Robert Spencer reveals the blood-drenched history and inner workings of the Islamic State - its military conquests, how it is financing its expansion, and the ideology that is driving its success. As Spencer reveals, the Islamic State has taken the first steps on the path to becoming a serious world power - steps that Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda dreamed of but were afraid to take. The Complete Infidel's Guide to ISIS is your one-stop easy reference for all you need to know about ISIS - and how "infidels" can stop its reign of terror.

Politically correct westerns must read

Another awesome title from Robert Spencer. You listen to him talk in any setting and you can tell why Islamists have decided it isn't such a good idea to debate him publically.

The jabs at Obama are relevant to today's society and if you are a supporters of his you shouldn't just stick your head in the sand and pretend they are partisan. Actually think abut what is being written.

Is it reasonable for our President to claim that Islamic jihadists who are carrying out EXACTLY what is written in their holy book a thousand and a half years ago are really being motivated by GLOBAL WARMING!?

Mr. Spencer has said it before and it's true, we do not have any real Western powers anymore. A western power actually represents western values and strength. It speaks out against the evil that is decapitating the Christians, Yazidi's, Zoroastrians, other Muslims. It isn't ISIS, it is "radical" Islam.

Everything from Spencer is must read... especially with what is happening around the world in Paris, Syria, Israel, San Bernadino, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Not what I was expecting.

Was not what I was hoping it would be. I was more interested in an in depth history of ISIS and the war on Syria and Iraq. This is more of a wave top overview of where ISIS came from and a conservative critique of the Obama Administration.

I was certainly hoping for a more scholarly/historical analysis with little to no bias. This is NOT it. The author gives unneeded criticism to the Obama administration so much so that it breaks up the narrative to give his jabs. Even seems to be a climate change denier.

If you are looking for an informative book on current events, this is not it. If you are a conservative pundit this is a book for you. If not, move on.
