The Shia Revival: How Conflicts within Islam Will Shape the Future by Vali Nasr

The New York Times bestseller: Historically incisive, geographically broad-reaching, and brimming with illuminating anecdotes.--Max Rodenbeck, New York Review of Books Profiled on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, Iranian-born scholar Vali Nasr has become one of Americas leading commentators on current events in the Middle East, admired and welcomed by both media and government for his concise and coherent analysis (Wall Street Journal). In this smart, clear and timely book (Washington Post), Nasr brilliantly dissects the political and theological antagonisms within Islam. He provides a unique and objective understanding of the 1,400-year bitter struggle between Shias and Sunnis, and sheds crucial light on its modern-day consequences--from the nuclear posturing of Irans President Ahmadinejad to the recent U.S.-enabled shift toward Shia power in Iraq and Hezbollahs continued dominance in Lebanon. This paperback edition features a new foreword for 2007.
