This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The "Shi'ites of the Middle East" is a compilation of AEI scholars' essays on the Shi'ite communities of Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Azerbaijan, and Pakistan. In it, Middle East experts Michael Rubin and Ahmad K. Majidyar conclude that the United States need not take sides in the Sunni-Shi'ite sectarian conflict. Rather, it should stand firmly on behalf of the principles that benefit both communities. Should the United States pursue such a path, not only will freedom benefit, but so too will American national security.
