Mark Stout discusses these questions with Dr. William McCants, author of the new book The ISIS Apocalypse: The History, Strategy, and Doomsday Vision of the Islamic State. McCants, who is Director of the Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World at the Brookings Institution and an instructor in the MA in Global Security Studies program here at Johns Hopkins Advanced Academic Programs, has delved deeply into the internal records of ISIS. With both humor and nuance he describes ISIS’ apocalyptic ultra-violent vision.
