Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book deserves to be read by anyone concerned with the relationship between religion and state in Iran and Islam." - New Republic "This is an important book.... Arjomand has certainly challenged much contemporary Western scholarship and made an important contribution to the continuing debate on the subject of religion and politics in [Shi'ite] Islam." - American Historical Review "A remarkable achievement in providing a sustained, solid theoretical perspective on a massive movement in modern Islamic societies, while advancing the sociological study of Islam to an unsurpassed level.... Supported by an impressive and unprecedented analytical examination of theological and juridical texts." - Contemporary Sociology "Very illuminating.... Rich and comprehensive.... A sophisticated analysis of the history of Shi'ite influence on political action in Iran." - American Journal of Sociology"
