The Arab Shia represent a majority of the overall population along the Arab coast of the Persian Gulf and are the largest religious group in Lebanon.

Historically there have been major tensions between the Shia and Sunni communities. This book, based on extensive field interviews, examines the nature of Shiite belief and community life, contemporary political and social problems, key grievances, and the nature of their relationship with the dominant Sunni state today as they seek a major voice in a new political order. Integration of the Shia is a key to orderly political evolution in the Gulf in the next century.
