Listen to Cockburn discuss his latest book The Age of Jihad (Verso) with Guardian journalist Rachel Shabi, author of Not the Enemy: Israel’s Jews from Arab Lands.

Award-winning journalist Patrick Cockburn’s chronicles of the collapse of Syria/Iraq 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 in the birth of ISIS.
