    DescriptionIn this "smart, clear and timely" book ("Washington Post"), Vali Nasr, one of America's leading commentators on the Middle East, dissects the political and theological antagonisms within Islam. His "concise and coherent" ("The Wall Street Journal") analysis provides an objective understanding of the 1,400-year struggle between Shias and Sunnis, and sheds light on its modern-day consequences.

    Review quote
    "I'm reading a book by Vali Nasr, The Shia Revival. He says the biggest legacy of Iraq is not extra terrorism but the ignition of the Shia-Sunni divide." Martin Amis, The Independent on Sunday "The value of Mr Nasr's account lies in the context he gives to today's headlines." The Economist "Historically incisive, geographically broad-reaching, and brimming with illuminating anecdotes." New York Review of Books"
