Fanar Haddad is one of the pre-eminent scholars on sectarianism in Iraq. His 2011 book Sectarianism in Iraq, Antagonistic Visions of Unity (http://www.amazon.com/Sectarianism-Iraq-Antagonistic-Visions-Unity/dp/0199327386/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1432492017&sr=8-1&keywords=fanar+haddad) was a ground breaking work on the topic. Recently Haddad wrote “The Hashd: Redrawing the Military and Political Map of Iraq” (http://www.mei.edu/content/article/hashd-redrawing-military-and-political-map-iraq) for the Middle East institute. That spurred this interview about what impact the Hashd al-Shaabi, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMUs) might have on the future of Iraqi politics. Haddad can be followed on Twitter at @fanarhaddad (https://twitter.com/fanarhaddad).
