Gripping, sobering and revelatory ... Unrivalled -- Tom Holland * New Statesman * [A] hugely important book ... Indispensable -- David Aaronovitch * The Times * Fascinating ... Highly readable ... The western military with its superior firepower can bomb Isis out of existence in Raqqa and Mosul as much as it likes, but we won't destroy the ideology if we don't understand what it is. This book goes a long way towards filling that gap -- Christina Lamb * Sunday Times * Indispensable and gripping .... Wood's quest to understand the Islamic State is a round-the-world journey to the end of the night. As individuals, the men he encounters are misfits, even losers. But their millenarian Islamist ideology makes them the most dangerous people on the planet. -- Niall Ferguson
