Political Islam is not new to the Middle East, but the appearance of ISIS has stretched the phenomenon to the extreme. What are the implications of ISIS for the future of the region and for Islamist movements in general?  How will Muslims’ understanding of Islam be affected?

He has written numerous books on Middle East politics and Islamic movements and Eurasian geopolitics, recently ‘Turkey and the Arab Spring: Leadership in the Middle East.’ His latest book is a novel: ‘Breaking Faith: a novel of espionage and an American’s crisis of conscience in Pakistan.
