Jürgen  Todenhöfer - Inside IS – 10 Days in the 'Islamic State'


The latest and highly explosive report by the bestselling author

During the summer of 2014, Jürgen Todenhöfer spent several months interviewing Islamists who had joined the Islamic State (IS). These conversations confirmed what has since become well known: that the perfidious objectives of the "Caliphate" is to set up a worldwide theocracy and that it will go to all lengths, including mass murder, even among Muslims, to reach its goal. Later in 2014, Todenhöfer travelled to Mosul and succeeded in being the first Western journalist allowed into areas controlled by the Islamic State.

Todenhöfer’s book is a report of this perilous journey in which he reveals the everyday lives and motives of the IS fighters. No one thus far has succeeded in researching the IS so precisely and from so close a proximity as has Todenhöfer. His dramatic report from the "realm of evil" is a penetrating admonition that both a political solution to the spiral of violence and an effective strategy for fighting terrorism need to be found.

"One need not always agree with him, but the courage and commitment with which Jürgen Todenhöfer reports from the crisis regions of the world deserve our respect. Now Todenhöfer tells of his most dangerous journey – to Mossul, the centre of the Islamic State."
