Graeme Wood. The Way of the Strangers: Encounters with the Islamic State. New York, NY: Random House, December 20th, 2016. 352 pp.
4 out of 5
This is a book that tries to give readers the look of what supporters of the Islamic State looks like written by a journalist for the publication called The Atlantic. The author Graeme Wood interviews various Islamic State supporters and goes all around the world in his pursuit of interviews. This book is the result of Wood’s investigative journalism. Since there is not a lot of book out there that describes the people who support the Islamic State in their own words or their perspective (even though the book injects his critique and his thought) this makes this work all the more fascinating.
