Centre for Islamic and Middle East Studies (University of Oslo) and Consortium for Research on Terrorism and Transnational Crime (FFI, PHS and NUPI) have the pleasure to invite you to a book launch seminar with Dr. Will McCants, who will present his new book: “The ISIS Apocalypse: The History, Strategy and Doomsday Vision of the Islamic State” (2015).
Listen to the book launch her!
About the book launch: Dr. Will McCants will discuss the Islamic State’s history, tactics, and goals, and the many ways in which it is more ruthless, more apocalyptic, and more devoted to state-building than any of its predecessors or current competitors. How has it attracted so many followers and conquered so much land in its relatively brief existence?
Dr. William McCants is a senior fellow in the Center for Middle East Policy and director of the Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World. He is also an adjunct faculty member at Johns Hopkins University and has served in government and think tank positions related to Islam, the Middle East, and terrorism, including as State Department senior adviser for countering violent extremism.
