About this item

From Syria to Somalia, from Libya to Indonesia, from Yemen to the capitals of Europe, Islamic militancy appears stronger, more widespread, and more threatening than ever.
ISIS, Boko Haram, and other such groups together command significant military power, rule millions, and control extensive territories. Al Qaeda remains potent and is rapidly evolving. As a new generation of Western extremists emerges—as seen by the horrifying attacks in Paris and Brussels as well as the ?lone wolf” operatives in the United States—it is imperative that we understand who these groups are and what they actually want.
In The New Threat prizewinning frontline reporter Jason Burke—?one of the shrewdest observers of contemporary Muslim activism” (The New York Review of Books)—cuts through the mass of opinion and misinformation to explain the nature of the threat we now face. Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize, The New Threat is vital if we are to understand our fears rather than succumb to them, to act rationally and effectively, and to address successfully one of the most urgent and global problems of our time.
