Sunni-Shia Conflict
74,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sunni Islam and Shia Islam are the two major denominations of Islam. Their division traces back to a Sunni-Shia schism following the death of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the year 632. A dispute over succession to Muhammad as a caliph of the Islamic community spread across various parts of the world, which led to the Battle of Jamal and Battle of Siffin. The dispute intensified greatly after the Battle of Karbala, in which Hussein ibn Ali and his household were killed by the ruling Umayyad Caliph Yazid I, and the outcry for revenge divided the early Islamic community.In recent years, Sunni-Shia relations have been increasingly marked by conflict, particularly the Iran-Saudi Arabia proxy conflict. Sectarian violence persists to this day from Pakistan to Yemen and is a major element of friction throughout the Middle East. Tensions between communities have intensified during power struggles, such as the Bahraini uprising, the Iraq War, and most recently the Syrian Civil War and in the formation of the self-styled Islamic State of Iraq and Syria that has launched a genocide against Shias.

The Inability Of Peacekeeping To Address The Se...

The collapse of Zaire brought with it the invading armies of eight African states, along with an unknown number of paramilitary groups. Due to the complexity of the conflict International Relations (IR) theory has attempted to explain the cause of the conflict as a war of resources, anarchy, neo-imperialism, a failure of international institutions or the constructive nature of parties involved in the conflict. Instead this monograph utilizes neorealism to explain the cause of continuation of conflict in the Congo. Beginning with the Rwandan Genocide which led to the Rwandan-Congolese security dilemma intern causing the First and Second Congo Wars, and was followed by proxy warfare between the two states. The inability of the United Nations peacekeeping mission to address the security dilemma or strengthen the state capacity of the Congo to impose its sovereignty over its territory explains the continuation of conflict in eastern Congo. A better understanding of the security dilemma posed by non-state actors and its effects on the interaction with states can aid in understanding of other conflicts that have not be resolved by international interventions.

Days of the Fall
58,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Days of the Fall takes the reader into the heart of the terrible wars in Syria and Iraq. The book combines frontline reporting with analysis of the deeper causes and effects of the conflict. Over five years, Jonathan Spyer reported from the depths of the wars, spending time in Aleppo, Baghdad, Damascus, Mosul, Idlib, Hasaka and other frontline areas. He witnessed some of the most dramatic events of the conflict – the rescue of the trapped Yezidis from the attempted ISIS genocide in 2014, the Assad regime’s assault on Aleppo, the rise of independent Kurdish power in north east Syria, the emergence of the Shia militias in Iraq as a key force. The book depicts these events, and seeks to place them within a broader framework. The author notes the ethnic and sectarian faultlines in both Syria and Iraq, and contends that both countries have now effectively separated along these lines, leading to the emergence of de facto fragmentation and the birth of a number of new entities. The book also notes that this confused space has now become an arena for proxy conflict between regional and global powers. Containing interviews with key figures from all sides of the conflict, such as the Shia militias in Iraq, and even ISIS members, Days of the Fall serves as an invaluable and comprehensive guide to the complex dynamics and the tragic human impact of the wars.
