Sectarianism and Coexistence in the Modern Middle East
Professor Makdisi seeks to provide a historical perspective to the contemporary sectarian tragedy in the modern Middle East. He uncovers a modern culture of coexistence in a region that is rich in religious diversity, but which today encompasses a series of war-torn countries including Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.
