Read full description of the books El fénix islamista:«Claro, conciso e inequívoco. En este libro, la autora analiza la peligrosa deriva del terrorismo internacional, hasta ahora completamente malinterpretada por Occidente y sus aliados». Michael Chandler, coautor de Countering Terrorism y presidente y exmiembro del Equipo de Seguimiento del Comité de Sanciones a Al Qaeda en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU Desde su aparición a finales de la década de 1990 como aspiración yihadista del líder terrorista Abu Musab al Zarqawi, el Estado Islámico (conocido bajo diversos nombres, ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda de Irak) se ha transformado en una imponente empresa que trastoca las fronteras de países de Medio Oriente e impone en una superficie geográfica mayor que la del Reino Unido su brutal marca de la sharía. Mediante una guerra tradicional de conquista para abrir camino a su versión siglo XXI del califato histórico, el Estado Islámico utiliza una tecnología moderna para el reclutamiento y la financiación, asociando cada día poblaciones locales al nuevo Estado. Surgido de las cenizas de fallidas aventuras yihadistas, el Estado Islámico no es ya una simple red terrorista sino un portentoso enemigo en sintonía con la nueva modernidad del actual desorden mundial. Como dice Napoleoni, «ignorar estos hechos no solo es engañoso y trivial, sino peligroso. “Conoce a tu enemigo” sigue siendo el proverbio más importante en la lucha contra el terrorismo».

She is among the few economists who predicted the credit crunch and the recession, and advises several banks on strategies to counter the current ongoing crisis. She lectures regularly around the world on economics, terrorism and money laundering.
Loretta is also a columnist and writes about terrorism, money laundering and the economy for several European financial papers including El Pais, The Guardian and Le Monde. In the 1990s she was among the first journalists to interview the Red Brigades, the Italian Marxist armed group. She subsequently spent three years interviewing members of other terrorist organizations. In 2003 she interviewed followers of al Zarqawi in both Europe and in the Middle East.
Born and raised in Rome, in the mid 1970s she became an active member of the feminist movement and a political activist. She was a Fulbright scholar at Johns Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in Washington DC and a Rotary Scholar at the London School of Economics. She has a PhD in economics and a Masters of Philosophy in international relations and one in terrorism.
She began her career as an economist, working for several banks and international organizations in Europe and the US. In the early 1980s she spent 2 years in Budapest at the National Bank of Hungary working on a project for the convertibility of the florin that ten years later became the blueprint for the convertibility of the rouble. In he 1980s she worked for a UK registered Russian Bank, Moscow Narodny Bank, which acted as the foreign branch of the Bank of Foreign Trade. This position afforded her a unique insight into the Soviet economy. In 1992 she produced the final documentation for the structure of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, IBRD. She teaches a course at Judge Business Schools, Cambridge.

She lives in London and in the US with her husband and their four children.
Napoleoni is currently working at a book linking the post 9/11 Western foreign policy, the kidnapping and refugee crisis. Based upon original interviews with former hostages, negotiators, member of the crisis unit, kidnap owes and refugees, the book will unveil how post 9/11 Western foreign policy is responsible for the birth of a new breed of criminal and terrorist engaged in kidnapping of Westerners and trafficking migrants. Napoleoni defines these people Merchant of Men.
