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.

The Future of War: A History, with Lawrence Freedman

"Though most of the literature you will read on the future of war certainly talks about war as between regular armies, as proper fights, now with drones or with autonomous vehicles or robots or whatever, or even painless--cyber and so on--yet actually the reality of war is as it has always been: it is vicious, and it is nasty, and it kills the wrong people, and it does so in considerable numbers."
