You Must Understand



You Must Understand tells the story of the Islamic State through the eyes of civilians in Iraq and Syria.  History and culture sections frame the narratives of the interviews of those most impacted by ISIS.  Analyzing the socio-political factors that led to the emergence and proliferation of the Islamic State, Ms. Sweeney invites readers into a nuanced understanding of stories of resilience, courage, and heartbreak.
