Sunni and Shia
Mike Rappaport

Here is a simple quiz on Sunni and Shia.  Ilya Somin suggests that many government officials with responsibilities in foreign affairs would fail it.  If true, this is quite pathetic, because the quiz is very basic.

I took the quiz and got 4 out of 8. I admit I know very little to nothing about the differences between the two groups. However, I would like to learn more. Can you direct me to any books or articles you think do a good job of describing the history of the two groups, the differences between the two groups, and which parts of the middle east are under the control of either group? Thanks.
