Event Details

Award winning journalist Patrick Cockburn’s chronicles of the collapse of the Middle East, and the devastating role of the West, have become essential reading for anyone interested in the dominant conflict of our time—the Sunni-Shia war, and the subsequent origins of ISIS. His latest bookThe Age of Jihad will be the most in-depth analysis of the failure of the Middle East to date.

In conversation with writer Rachel Shabi, Cockburn explores how the rise of ISIS did not explode suddenly in Syria after the Arab Spring as the conventional view holds, but over several years in occupied Iraq. It is in the sectarian conflict that engulfed Iraq following the war of 2003 that patterns were established that would later spill over into Syria with such devastating results.

Cockburn, the author of the best-selling The Rise of Islamic State, was the first Western commentator to warn of ISIS, so far ahead of everyone else that last year the judges of the British Journalism Awards advised the UK government to ‘consider pensioning off the whole of MI6 and hiring Patrick Cockburn instead.’
