The Islamist Phoenix — On Sale Now!

Loretta02

Congrats to Seven Stories author Loretta Napoleoni on the release of The Islamist Phoenix, an uncompromising look at ISIS that gives us the news behind the news.

Chelsea Manning calls it “a great entry point for those in want of a more solid understanding of the history and social complexities involved in the rise of the Islamic State” that “explores how this iteration of Islamism does not form from a vacuum, but almost inevitably, and sometimes knowingly, from the circumstances and conditions of the West’s recent involvement in the Middle East.”

Journalist John Pilger praises it for “replac[ing] hysteria with illuminating and often wise analysis.”

Chris Hedges calls it “a vital contribution to our understanding of what is happening in the Middle East” that “refuses to become trapped in the easy and fatuous clichés peddled in the West about resistance and radical Islam,” “exposes the folly of empire,” and “forces us to see ourselves as others see us.”

On the evening of Tuesday, December 2nd, Chris and Loretta appeared together at the New York Society for Ethical Culture  in a discussion moderated by Ted Rall, and featuring never-before-seen video from VICE Media journalist Jean-René Augé-Napoli, who presented it in person with Rocco Castoro, executive producer of VICE’s Ground Zero: Syria.

A Note to Professors and Teachers

Dear Professors,

Well, here we are.  Another turn of the wheel.  The Beaujolais nouveau is out.  That is, Seven Stories’ new academic catalog is making its way into college mailboxes across the country.  (If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here.)  We think it’s beautiful, by the way, and hope you do, too.

Exam copies of all our titles are available free of charge.  Please just send us a request on school letterhead by email at academic@sevenstories.com, by fax at (212) 226-1411, or by mail at 140 Watts Street, NY, NY 10013.  Additionally, we have classroom guides for many of our books available at no charge to educators — please ask us about them.

If you have any questions to ask, feedback to offer, or conspiracies to hatch, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Ian Dreiblatt, who handles our academic marketing, at ian@sevenstories.com.

Thanks and Good Wishes,

The Seven Stories Academic Team
