About this book

Sunni-Shi'i relations have undergone significant transformations in recent decades. In order to understand these developments, the contributors to the present volume demonstrate the complexity of Sunni-Shi'i relations by analyzing political, ideological, and social encounters between the two communities from early Islamic history to the present.

Reviews

"Although there have been a few previous works on the subject of ecumenism and conflict in Islam between Sunnism and Shi'ism, none has had the breadth and depth of this book. It will appeal to readers who want to be better informed about an important area that is vital to understanding what is going on the in the Middle East. It contains the work of a good range of writers who are strong in this area." - Moojan Momen, author of An Introduction to Shi'i Islam and Understanding Religion
