Jihadi Archipelago: Blood & Joy in the Islamic State

Anthropologist Scott Atran explains the revolutionary context of the Islamic State – as a dynamic startup nation, an attractor of the aggrieved, and an existential challenge to Enlightenment ideals of human rights and the secular state – and warns that Western governments are giving ISIS exactly the chaos it needs to grow.

Scott is co-author of the New York Review of Books essay Paris: The War ISIS Wants.
