Abstract

Nicholas Pelham’s A New Muslim Order, written by a senior journalist of international standing, tries to make sense of the current phenomenon of a multi-faceted Shi’ite ‘revival’ in the Arab world, a phenomenon which has been termed by others - wrongly, to the mind of this reviewer - as the emergence of a ‘Shi’ite Crescent’ (apparently in analogy to the ‘Fertile Crescent’ of Antiquity, spanning from Mesopotamia/Iraq over Syria to what is now Lebanon).
