The Shia Revival by Vali Nasr

Finished this one on the trip home. Nice discussion from a slightly pro-Shia perspective of what is going on within Islam with Shia and Sunni conflicts and discussion. Lots of details about the differences between and within the groups. Paints yet another perspective about what is happening currently in Iraq.

Doesn't make it sound like the "fun" in Iraq will end any time soon, nor will it remain confined to just Iraq and the countries on its borders.
Thought provoking.
