In November 2015, ISIS terrorists massacred scores of people in Paris with coordinated attacks on the Bataclan concert hall, cafés and restaurants, and the national sports stadium. On Bastille Day in 2016, an ISIS sympathizer drove a truck into crowds of vacationers at the beaches of Nice, and two weeks later an elderly French priest was murdered during morning Mass by two ISIS militants.

What caused the radicalization of young French Muslims to occur? Why did the governments in France and across Europe fail to address it? Why is this new wave of jihadists targeting Europe?

Gilles Kepel, one of Europe's leading experts on Islamism, the Middle East, and North Africa, is a professor at the Institute of Political Studies, Paris (Sciences Po). His numerous books—which include Jihad: The Trail of Political IslamThe War for Muslim Minds: Islam and the West, and Beyond Terror and Martyrdom: The Future of the Middle East—have been translated into 17 languages.

But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.

Fractured Continent: Europe's Crises and the Fate of the West, with William Drozdiak

In some ways Europe is more fragmented than at any time in the last three decades, says Drozdiak. There's a north/south split between wealthy creditor nations and deeply indebted ones; an east/west divide, as Poland and Hungary revert to nationalism; pressures of regional separatism; Brexit; and the migrant crisis. Then there's Trump, who sees Europe as a burden and economic rival. 2018 could be a pivotal year. What will happen?
