Nobody Walks in Kuwait


New Look and Recommendation

Welcome to the New Look! It does seem a bit somber, perhaps, but at least it is a bit more practical. What do you think? The previous look was more esthetic, but more limited.

Now, since I consider myself a global citizen generally and since I seek to learn about all aspects of the region I’m now living in, I have started reading a very interesting book, which I highly recommend to those of you who read French, or, it seems that the same author does have a few works translated into English:

L’Islam Chi’ite, croyances et ideologies by Yann Richard

http://www.amazon.com/LIslam-chiite-id%C3%A9ologies-Yann-Richard/dp/2213027439/ref=sr_1_8/103-9220594-1360643?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1174388551&sr=1-8

It is so important to understand the ideas and beliefs behind the headlines we see and hear each day, and, now that I am actually living in a region where divergences within Islam make a difference, I feel it is my duty to be fully “up to speed” on the foundations. Richard’s book is going to help me a lot in this respect!
