"ISIS is a significant threat to modern society--it has caused the deaths of thousands and the rise of anti-Muslim sentiment around the world, despite the fact that prominent Muslim leaders have denounced the group's actions. Understanding ISIS is vital to defeating it. Readers learn about the creation of this terrorist group, its rise to power, and what is being done by nations around the world to stop its members from taking more lives. Full-color photographs and a timeline of key events contribute to a comprehensive overview of this chapter in the story of modern terrorism."
