The History of the Sunni and Shia Split
- Understanding the Divisions within Islam
- By: Charles River Editors
- Narrated by: Colin Fluxman
- Length: 1 hr and 25 mins
Different branches of the same religion are the exception more than the rule, and they have had a profound impact upon history. The schism between the Orthodox and Catholic Churches influenced relationships between nations across Europe, and religious intolerance based on different Christian faiths led to persecution and outright violence across the continent for centuries.
Excellent preface to making sense of intl news.

This book takes a very shallow look at the conflict and fails to make it clear that it has always been a political conflict and in way what so ever is related to belief or Islam as a religion.
