[e Iranian Revolution is regarded as a major watershed in the post-World War II history of the Middle East, a transformative event which altered the rhythms of daily life and catapulted religious leaders to an unprecedented political position. Naturally, the revolution has been the subject of intense scrutiny of both academic and non-academic nature. Scholarly works on the subject tend to focus on a particular theme or period of modern Iranian history, rather then situate the Shi'ite revival generated by the revolution in the broader context of Islamic history. This article examines the early Islamic period's impact on the rise of Sh'isim, a period which defined the relationship between the Shi'ites and their Sunni rivals, and later affected Iran's revolutionary ideology and contemporary Shi'ite political thought., The Arab-Israeli peace process, a U. S. led diplomatic effort, has been unfolding over nearly four decades. Various American policies, ranging from a step by step approach to securing a comprehensive settlement, reached their peak in the 1990's, with the Clinton administration's sustained efforts to settle the Arab-Israeli dispute. Although these efforts yielded several successful outcomes, including mutual recognition between Israel and the Palestinian national movement and greater Arab-Israeli normalization, they were marred by the continuous Israeli-Palestinian strife and other negative developments. Much of these efforts were promoted by professional experts, working for various branches of the U. S. government. is article surveys several books written by some of these officials, which provide diverse accounts of the unfolding events. e testimonies in these books range from comprehensive surveys to attempts at exploring the reasons for America's failed venture, and offer new insights into the peace process.]
