Reviews

"A sage assessment showing how IS world domination could never come to pass because it has alienated too many Muslims worldwide."--Kirkus Reviews
"Fishman's Master Plan is now the standard by which every other analytical book about ISIS should be judged."--Nibras Kazimi, Bustan
"The definitive history of the Islamic State--told by one of a handful of experts who studied the group long before it became what it is today."--Peter Neumann, King's College London
"With its original and powerful analysis, The Master Plan should be required reading for anyone attempting to understand both ISIS and al-Qaeda and the implications for contemporary global security."--Bruce Hoffman, Georgetown University
"For too many years, the United States and its allies have failed to understand the ideological drive of the people who lead ISIS. Brian Fishman tells us who they are, what they think and where they hope to be headed. His work needs to be read by policy makers and average citizens alike."--General John P. Abizaid, U.S. Army (Ret.), former commander, U.S. Central Command
"Brian Fishman's Master Plan is a deeply researched account of ISIS' rise to prominence from its obscure roots in pre-9/11 Afghanistan. Fishman masterfully elucidates the organization's history, tactics and strategy."--Peter Bergen, author of United States of Jihad
