From an on-line posting: "This monograph explores the growing Islamist-secularist divide in Arab countries, particularly in Egypt and Tunisia, which has polarized such societies and often led to zero-sum politics. It offers recommendations for U.S. policymakers to maneuver through this divide while preserving U.S. interests and values.

He was a professional staff member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Mr. Aftandilian previously worked for 13 years as a Middle East analyst at the U.S. Department of State. His other government experiences include analytical work for the U.S. Department of Defense and the Library of Congress.
