About this item
About this item
Relations between Sunnis and Shi'is, Islam's two main sects, have been tense for generations. Yet only lately have they become confrontational. Inter-confessional strife has increased, owing to the dynamic nature of politics in Muslim states during recent decades.
Revolution, civil war and regime change have galvanized Shi'is into direct political action, regionally and internationally. Conflict between the sects has further intensified in the fallout from the Arab uprisings that began in 2011, placing Shi'is at the vertex of developments in Bahrain, Yemen, Iraq, and Syria.
Yet Sunni - Shi'i relations have been marked by cooperation as well as conflict, and this dispassionate study of Shi'i politics in modern times argues that the relationship matters more to the Middle East now, and to the Muslim world, than at any time since the demise of the Ottoman Empire.
