    In this gripping account, Robert Manne shows how the Islamic State's worldview evolved, from the 1960s prison writings of Sayyid Qutb all the way to its elegant online magazine of horror, Dabiq. This gripping account reveals the crucial role of texts such as The Management of Savagery and figures such as al-Zarqawi, who set out to pit Sunni against Shi'a, tearing Iraq apart.
