What is the Islamic State and where does it come from? What new forms of globalized political violence has it ushered? How has the materialization of the Islamic State impacted contemporary international history and politics? In a sequel to his Understanding Al Qaeda (2011), political historian Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou presents in a new book, A Theory of ISIS – Political Violence and the Transformation of the Global Order (University of Chicago Press and Pluto Press, 2018), an original take on the armed group, discussing the social sciences perspective, unpacking its complex dynamics not merely solely in terms of its terrorist nature and its religious rhetoric but rather with a view to deepen our understanding of the group’s impact on the very nature of the meaning of contemporary post-modern political violence.Buy tickets/get more info now
