3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Intro to the Conflict., 4 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: After the Prophet: The Epic Story of the Shia-Sunni Split in Islam (Kindle Edition)
The book by Leslie Hazelton is no doubt a brilliant read and a good introduction to both Muslim and Non Muslims about the origins of the conflict dating back to the 7th and 8th century. My only criticism of the book is that it is a bit pro Shia, and on certain chapters and pages it stimulates Anti Sunni thoughts. Coming from a Sunni back ground, it is easy to pick on those on suggestions. However the writer being an outsider to Islam must be applauded for the effort gone into the book, she has at the same time tried to be objective and highlight that the divide is political as opposed to spiritual or religious in nature.

It is both political and spiritual the division in Islam. Spirituality was denied in favour of power and the author has shown it as it was.
