Steeped in the Middle East since university days, historian, Arab linguist and international lawyer John McHugo is the ideal person to explain how a succession conflict in the 7th century can still have such massive repercussions today. Join us for drinks and a talk by the author himself to launch this essential guide to understanding the genesis, development and manipulation of one of the greatest schisms that has come to define Islam: A Concise History of Sunnis and Shi’is charts nothing less than the struggle for the soul of the Muslim world.
