內容簡介


華爾街日報推薦了解中東恐怖主義發展必讀的十本書之一

揭開伊斯蘭國(ISIS)神秘面紗的研究之作 深入探討伊斯蘭國的歷史、戰略及末日預言的想像

為什麼伊斯蘭國(ISIS)能吸引這麼多追隨者?為什麼伊斯蘭國能征服這麼多國家?殘忍的手段及偉大的預言是否能使伊斯蘭國繼續戰勝敵人?本書將探討伊斯蘭國中的宗教狂熱者和末日預言論,是如何創造出過去的伊斯蘭國及面對其黑暗的未來。

伊斯蘭國(ISIS)是當代最致命和最成功的聖戰組織,甚至超越蓋達組織(al-Qaeda)。憑著幾千名追隨者進軍敘利亞和伊拉克,征服有著百萬人口的國家,從中奴役婦女、斬首俘虜,大膽挑釁任何阻擋他們的敵人。這個恐怖的組織擴張快速,在中亞地區插上了象徵伊斯蘭國的黑色旗幟。作者McCants從伊斯蘭組織中獲取第一手的情報資料,加上多年深入的研究,引用中世紀宗教文獻,揭開伊斯蘭國的秘密及恐怖主義是如何滲透狂熱支持者。

The Islamic State is one of the most lethal and successful jihadist groups in modern history, surpassing even al-Qaeda. Thousands of its followers have marched across Syria and Iraq, subjugating millions, enslaving women, beheading captives, and daring anyone to stop them. Thousands more have spread terror beyond the Middle East under the Islamic State's black flag.


How did the Islamic State attract so many followers and conquer so much land? By being more ruthless, more apocalyptic, and more devoted to state-building than its competitors. The shrewd leaders of the Islamic State combined two of the most powerful yet contradictory ideas in Islam-the return of the Islamic Empire and the end of the world-into a mission and a message that shapes its strategy and inspires its army of zealous fighters. They have defied conventional thinking about how to wage wars and win recruits. Even if the Islamic State is defeated, jihadist terrorism will never be the same.

Based almost entirely on primary sources in Arabic-including ancient religious texts and secret al-Qaeda and Islamic State letters that few have seen - William McCants' The ISIS Apocalypse explores how religious fervor, strategic calculation, and doomsday prophecy shaped the Islamic State's past and foreshadow its dark future.
