Foreword By Hamid Algar

In the aftermath of the triumph of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, a glutinous flood of publications on Islam and politics began to submerge the academic and pseudo-academic book market in the West. In the midst of such staggering amount of writings, whether of a serious or pamphleteering type, this book offers a lucid and well-argued interpretations of modern Islamic political thought that is indispensable for the understanding of much of the current political developments in the Muslim world.

Also covered in the book is: the concept of the Islamic state; and the Muslim response to the challenge of alien and modern ideologies such as nationalism, democracy and socialism - as well as notions of Shi'i modernism.

  • Shi'ism and Sunnism
  • Crisis over the Caliphate
  • Nationalism Democracy and socialism
  • Aspects of Shi'i Modernism
