DESCRIPTION

With brutal force and horrific beheadings of hostages, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has shocked the world. It has conquered territory equal to the size of Great Britain—and promises to create a new Muslim caliphate under the strict dictates of Sharia law.

How does ISIS recruit its jihadi army of international volunteers? Where do the key players, like elusive leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, come from? And how has the movement attracted global support and financing?

Michael Weiss is a columnist for Foreign Policy, The Daily Beast, and NOW Lebanon. He is also a fellow at the Institute of Modern Russia where he is the editor-in-chief of The Interpreter, an online translation journal.
