Overview

"Nathan Gonzalez has written the first general, accessible account of the conflict within the House of Islam. . . . The Sunni-Shia Conflict is a powerful and persuasive book."—Anthony Pagden, distinguished professor of political science, UCLA

Moving beyond tired descriptions of the Middle East as a land of ideological fanatics, Nathan Gonzalez exposes the cold political interests behind the ongoing conflict that pits members of the Sunni and Shia sects of Islam against each other.

Nathan Gonzalez is a fellow with the Truman National Security Project and the author of Engaging Iran.
