At the same time, Salazar contends that Western discourse has undergone a "rhetorical disarmament." To win the fight against ISIS and Islamic extremism, Western democracies and their media, politicians, and counterterrorism agencies must consider radically changing their approach to Islamic extremism. -- from dust jacket."@en ;
