The world's wealthiest and most powerful jihadists, ISIS originated within Al Qaeda with the goal of creating an Islamic state across Iraq and Syria and unrelenting jihad on Christians. This book gives a better understanding of the modern face of terror, and provides an overview of the laws of war and war crimes. These laws differentiate between the guilty and innocent, and explain why the US military and the Israeli Defense Forces are often limited in their defensive measures.

This book: We will talk about how ISIS emerged and became a threat
Also this book: *proceeds to have more chapters about Hamas and Israel rather than ISIS itself*

The book starts out promising, but is disorganized and never shows how Hammas and other terrorist organizations may have fed into ISIS. In the end, it appears to be different short papers tied together in order to take advantage of a trending topic. Read it for the information about terrorism, but don't expect that it tells you how ISIS "rises". The "laws of war" could be a topic onto itself, and, I have seen other descriptions of it in books written by soldiers themselves. The book does cover some of them successfully.

This book is more about Hamas than Isis.
