The Rise of Islamic State: ISIS and the New Sunni Revolution
Quite simply, the best Western journalist at work in Iraq today.”
 —Seymour Hersh

"Accessible…Cockburn describes a continuing tragedy in which hubris and optimism destroyed a seemingly promising revolution.” —New York Times

 “Amid the many books published on the current conflicts reshaping the Middle East, few are as informative or perceptive as The Rise of Islamic State.” 

“Patrick Cockburn has produced the first history of the rise of the Islamic State ... No one is better equipped for this task ... Indispensable.”
—Daily Telegraph

 “Patrick Cockburn spotted the emergence of ISIS much earlier than anybody else and wrote about it with a depth of understanding that was just in a league of its own. Nobody else was writing that stuff at that time, and the judges wondered whether the Government should consider pensioning off the whole of MI6 and hiring Patrick Cockburn instead.”
 —British Journalism Awards judges

 “A wonderful book.”
 —Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, BBC News

 —Richard Norton-Taylor, Guardian

 “His dispatches from Iraq are an exemplary untangling of the political and social complexity that lies behind one of the world’s great crises. He writes fairly, compassionately and clearly, with a steady and knowledgeable eye.”
 —Orwell Prize judges

 “One of the most accurate and intrepid journalists in Iraq.”
 —Sidney Blumenthal

 “Has anyone covered this nightmare [in the Greater Middle East] better than the world’s least embedded reporter, Patrick Cockburn? Not for my money. He’s had the canniest, clearest-eyed view of developments in the region for years now.”
—Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch

 —Washington Post
