Druze people reside primarily in Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan

Druze people reside primarily in Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan. The Institute of Druze Studies estimates that 40-50% of Druze live in Syria, 30-40% in Lebanon, 6-7% in Israel, and 1-2% in Jordan. Some Druze and non-Druze scholars like Samy Swayd and Sami Makarem state that this confusion is due to confusion about the role of the early preacher ad-Darazi, whose teachings the Druze rejected as heretical.

The Druzes are one of the smallest, least studied, and most esoteric .

The Druzes are one of the smallest, least studied, and most esoteric religious communities in the Middle East. Samy Swayd teaches courses on religious diversity and Islamic Studies at San Diego State University (SDSU).

The Druze (/druːz/; Arabic: درزي‎ darzī or durzī, plural دروز durūz; Hebrew: דְּרוּזִי drūzī plural. ְּרוּזִים, druzim) are an Arabic-speaking esoteric ethno-religious group originating in Western Asia who self-identify as Al-Muwaḥḥidūn (li. "The People of Monotheism"). Jethro of Midian is considered an ancestor of Druze, who revere him as their spiritual founder and chief prophet.

Druze studies are currently experiencing a breakthrough as attested by two recent bibliographies compiled by Samy S. . Swayd (1998) and Talal Fandi and Ziyad Abi-Shakra (2001). A selection of recent publications on Imami Shi‘ism, covering the early history and teachings of the Shi‘i imams recognized by the Ismailis, as well as some major genealogical works and biographical dictionaries, are also included. An attempt at comprehensive coverage of Arabic, Persian and Tajik (Cyrillic) publications has been made in the present bibliography.
