Jason Burke on the evolution of ISIS’s strategic thinking
'Islamic militants are of our time. They are in fact ahead of the curve very often. They were crowd-sourcing funding before the word was even invented.'
Jason Burke has been one of the foremost front-line reporters on Islamic militancy for almost two decades, reporting from throughout the Middle East and South Asia. His bestselling book Al-Qaeda: The True Story of Radical Islam overturned a multitude of misconceptions about Islamic extremism and rapidly established itself as the most accurate, readable and expert account of the phenomenon. His book The 9/11 Wars was described as ‘the best overview of the 9/11 decade in print’ (Economist). His work is translated into twelve languages. He is currently South Asia correspondent for The Guardian.
