Summary
The definitive book on the distinctive history and psychology of ISIS, based on Wood's unprecedented access to the Islamic State's own recruiters and supporters, and his extensive time reporting throughout the region.Based on interviews with Islamic State members and supporters, Wood delivers a fast-paced, riveting narrative about what the Islamic State wants and how it plans to get it. From the ideas that motivate the Islamic State, to the "fatwa factory" that produces their laws, to their very specific strategy for the future, Wood provides the true story of the on-the-ground reality of the wealthiest, most infamous jihadist group in our world today.A deep dive into the heart of the Islamic State's apocalyptic worldview, The War of the End of Times is a bracing look at this terrorist cult from the people who belong to it, promote it, and recruit for it
