Nader Hashemi, director of the Center for Middle East Studies and professor of Middle East and Islamic Politics at the University of Denver, and Danny Postel, assistant director of the Middle East and North African studies program at Northwestern University, discuss their new book Sectarianization: Mapping the New Politics of the Middle East  (Oxford University Press, 2017) and look at the political, economic, religious and ethnic divisions across Middle Eastern societies to get beyond the catch-all explanation of conflict from sectarianism.
