Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Keddie (history, UCLA) examines why Iran has seen so many revolutions in modern times, focusing on Twelver Shi'ism to illustrate how Iran's dominant religion has changed over the course of history. She discusses the development in the 19th and 20th centuries of political autonomy allied with the clerical hierarchy and the bazaar classes, and explains why Islamic politics have become so popular in many parts of the Muslim world.
