Shia Revival by Vali Nasr

Book Description

Iranian-born scholar Vali Nasr has become one of America's 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, front-page profile). In this "remarkable work" (Anderson Cooper), Nasr brilliantly dissects the political and theological antagonisms within Islam, providing a unique and objective understanding of the 1,400-year bitter struggle between Shias and Sunnis and shedding crucial light on its modern-day consequences.

Books By Author Vali Nasr

Shia Revival by Vali Nasr Shia Revival, Paperback (October 2016)

"Historically incisive, geographically broad-reaching, and brimming with illuminating anecdotes." -Max Rodenbeck, New York Review of Books

Dispensable Nation by Vali Nasr Dispensable Nation, Hardback (October 2013)

Clarence Darrow is the lawyer every law student dreams of being: on the side of right, loved by many women, played by Spencer Tracy in Inherit the Wind. His days-long closing arguments delivered without notes won miraculous reprieves for men doomed to hang.

Meccanomics by Vali Nasr Meccanomics, Hardback (April 2010)

Combining historical narrative with on-the-ground research, this title introduces a Muslim world we've never seen before; one that is being transformed by booming economies and a vibrant middle class that will tip the balance away from extremists. It offers an assessment of a world where financial might - not fundamentalism - is doing the talking.
