    A book that clearly explains how the entrenched authoritarian regimes of the Middle East continue to to use all possible majors at their disposal to remain in control and power without remorse of their consequences. The most powerful of these tools is that of the sectarian divide; pitting its own nationals against one another. So far this resulted in great results at perilous costs to the people and the development of the nations in the region. The entrenchment of the exiting regimes has served A book that clearly explains how the entrenched authoritarian regimes of the Middle East continue to to use all possible majors at their disposal to remain in control and power without remorse of their consequences. The most powerful of these tools is that of the sectarian divide; pitting its own nationals against one another. So far this resulted in great results at perilous costs to the people and the development of the nations in the region. The entrenchment of the exiting regimes has served no one else but the ruling elites. In each of the case studies in the book, not a single country can claim internal stability, socioeconomic development, or innovative productive societies. In reality all can be categorized as failed systems. It is an excellent reference both to nationals of these countries as well as foreigners who need to understand the truth about the region.

    I want to rate this book higher because it was a wealth of information that I found interesting and thought-provoking, but it was also incredibly dense and the amount of time it took me to get through it has me knocking a few stars off. Rather than one cohesive work, it's instead essentially a collection of scholarly articles analyzing sectarianism and (more specifically) sectarianization and securitization of minorities in the Middle East. Some chapters were easier to read than others, partially I want to rate this book higher because it was a wealth of information that I found interesting and thought-provoking, but it was also incredibly dense and the amount of time it took me to get through it has me knocking a few stars off. Rather than one cohesive work, it's instead essentially a collection of scholarly articles analyzing sectarianism and (more specifically) sectarianization and securitization of minorities in the Middle East. Some chapters were easier to read than others, partially due to the authors' different writing styles, but also because while background knowledge on events and key players isn't necessary to understand the argument, it does help. Personally, I found the chapters on Iraq, Syria, and Kuwait to be the most compelling, but there were plenty of interesting observations and points to be found throughout. All in all, this book is a fabulous resource for anyone interested in doing further research into sectarian policies and events in the Middle East, but might be better served read piecemeal and/or alongside other books rather than all in one go.

    This is an excellent topic and this book is so very informative -- very relevant to our times, when the assumption is that the Sunni-Shia divide dictates everything (and is due to inherent religious differences). The chapters each take on a different country and demonstrate that in most cases, the divide comes from political manipulation by people in power--not "baked-in" differences among people. My only reason for not giving this book a higher rating is the excruciatingly bad writing (uber aca This is an excellent topic and this book is so very informative -- very relevant to our times, when the assumption is that the Sunni-Shia divide dictates everything (and is due to inherent religious differences).
